TrickBot Banking Trojan Starts Stealing Windows Problem History

Recently a new version of TrickBot found of stealing Windows system reliability and performance information that is slightly out of the box as compare to normal scope of any banking Trojans.
Windows runs a reliability Analysis Matrix(RAC) to process the reliability monitoring on new installation of any software, upgrade or any kind of system error from the Operating system and applications well as hardware related problems.

For this, windows runs its RACAgent scheduled task hourly basis and store the date to a local folder. We can also disable the these details from task scheduler, but doing that you will no longer get the Reliability Monitor’s System Stability index.\

A detailed reports from a phishing campaign from My Online Security disclose that a TrickBot spotted focused on collecting and reading the Windows reliability database and information available under the C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\RAC\

Security Researcher published a list of files collected by the malware in twitter:
However it is still unclear purpose of collecting these data, but there must be a malicious purposes, like targeting phishing emails.

The phishing campaign sends TrickBot with emails claiming from Lloyds Bank using the email id which makes people believe the purpose of the email genuine.
The attacker crafts the email such a way that the reader will read the mail with full believe and open the attached document with malicious Macro. The Macro code then executes and enabled the TrickBot inside the system.


The Word document attached to the email has the Lloyds Bank letterhead to make it feel genuine. Added more with Symantec logo under the cover letter saying the file passes with the security solution.

After all the efforts to hide the malicious purpose, the file detected by 30 antivirus engines on Virus Total.
