The data targeted by Jester includes the following:

  • Browsers: Passwords, credit cards, cookies, autofill data, browsing history, and bookmarks of 20+ web browsers
  • Email clients: Thunderbird, Outlook, and FoxMail
  • IM apps: Telegram, Discord, WhatsApp, Signal, and Pidgin
  • Crypto wallets: Atomic, Coinomi, Electrum, Exodus, Guarda, Jaxx, Wasabi, Zcash, BitcoinCore, DashCore, LiteCore, MoneroCore
  • Password managers: KeePass, NordPass, LastPass, BitWarden, 1Password, RoboForm, and ten more password managers.
  • Gaming software: Steam sessions, Twitch, and OBS profiles with broadcasting keys
  • VPN clients: Windscribe VPN, NordVPN, EarthVPN, ProtonVPN, and OpenVPN
  • FTP clients: FileZilla, CoreFTP, WinSCP, and Snowflake

In addition to the above, Jester Stealer can also grab screenshots, profile the host system to gather basic information, and also steals network passwords.

Sneaking into systems

The Jester Stealer is a .Net-based malware that typically gets to the target systems via phishing emails, disguised as a txt, jar, ps1, bat, png, doc, xls, pdf, mp3, mp4, or a ppt file attachment.

Alternatively, the threat actors employ random distribution channels such as pirated content and hack tools promoted via YouTube.

It features several built-in checks to prevent analysis by checking if it is executed in a virtualized environment.

If the malware detects the presence of VirtualBox, VMBox, or VMWare on the host system, it terminates its execution.

All stolen data is copied into the system memory, so nothing is written on the disk. The data is archived in a ZIP file before exfiltration over port 9050, passed through a TOR proxy.

Once the exfiltration is done, Jester Stealer deletes itself from the infected machine to minimize the chances of the victim ever realizing the data breach.

How to stay safe

To keep the likelihood of infostealer infections at a minimum, avoid downloading executables from untrustworthy websites and torrent swarms.

Similarly, do not download and execute files that arrive via unsolicited emails, and always check downloaded files on an up-to-date AV tool from a reputable vendor.
