Cybersecurity analysts Cyberark noted that unlike most run-of-the-mill info stealers, Raccoon malware uses a variety of techniques to steal information. Its C++ malware can swipe data from at least 35 different browsers.

Raccoon is generally delivered to its victims through phishing campaigns and fraudulent emails with MS Office documents attached containing the malicious code. It can also spread to your machine through what is known as “exploit kits.” This is where you are profiled for any browser-based vulnerabilities and redirected to a site where the exploit kit is lying in wait.
