Cheating Cheaters: Malware Delivered as Call of Duty Cheats

This report examines a hacking tool being promoted for use against gamers by masquerading as a cheat for Call of Duty: Warzone. This particular tool is considered a dropper, a piece of malware that is used to install or deliver an additional payload, such as credential stealing malware, on a target system or device.

The dropper examined in this report, “Cod Dropper v0.1”, can be customized to install other, more destructive, malware onto the targets’ machines.
