This post is specifically to warn about a malware alert I saw about DISCORD but the thread could also be used for DISCORD in general.

Discord Turned Into an Info-Stealing Backdoor by New Malware

A new malware is targeting Discord users by modifying the Windows Discord client so that it is transformed into a backdoor and an information-stealing Trojan.

The Windows Discord client is an Electron application, which means that almost all of its functionality is derived from HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. This allows malware to modify its core files so that the client executes malicious behavior on startup.

Discovered by researcher MalwareHunterTeam earlier this month, this malware is called "Spidey Bot" based on the name of the Discord command and control channel that the malware communicated with. A comment in the article below, though, claims it's real name is "BlueFace".

When installed, the malware will add its own malicious JavaScript to the %AppData%\Discord\[version]\modules\discord_modules\index.js and %AppData%\Discord\[version]\modules\discord_desktop_core\index.js files.


Multiple screenshots follow in the article, and the article itself is continued so it would probably be best to read the at:

Another good reason to not use Discord.
