How to remove Dynamic stealer
Written by Tomas Meskauskas on
What kind of malware is Dynamic?
While analyzing the Dynamic malware, we discovered that it operates as an information stealer. Moreover, it downloads the BlackNET remote access trojan (RAT) on infected computers. Using both of these malicious programs, threat actors can steal sensitive information, take control of infected computers, and more.
More about Dynamic
Dynamic malware collects system information and sends it to threat actors via Telegram. This stealer may have more features in the future. In addition to stealing data, Dynamic downloads BlackNET on computers. BlackNET can launch DDoS attacks, execute scripts, exfiltrate data stored on browsers, log keystrokes, and more.
BlackNET is capable of launching distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks against targeted websites or networks. DDoS attacks overwhelm a website or network with traffic, rendering it inaccessible to legitimate users.
Also, BlackNET can execute scripts on an infected system, which allows an attacker to perform a wide range of actions, such as downloading and installing additional malware, modifying system settings, and more.
Moreover, BlackNET can exfiltrate data stored on web browsers, such as login credentials, browsing history, and cookies. This information can be valuable to attackers for further compromising the victim's accounts or using the stolen data for fraudulent activities.
In addition, BlackNET can log every keystroke made on an infected system, allowing the attacker to capture sensitive information such as passwords, credit card numbers, and other confidential data.

|Malware Removal (Windows)||
To eliminate possible malware infections, scan your computer with legitimate antivirus software. Our security researchers recommend using Combo Cleaner.
In summary, having a computer infected with Dynamic leads to injection of BlackNET, which is a powerful remote access trojan that can be used to carry out a wide range of malicious activities on an infected system. Victims may suffer financial and data loss, system compromise, loss of access to online accounts, and more.
Examples of other malware capable of stealing sensitive information and performing other tasks are Zaraza, RootFinder, and Cinoshi.
How did Dynamic infiltrate my computer?
Attackers often use phishing emails to trick users into clicking on links or downloading attachments that contain malware. Also, they can disguise malware as legitimate software or files and distribute them through file-sharing networks, social media platforms, or other online channels.
In other cases, cybercriminals can exploit vulnerabilities in software programs to gain access to a user's computer or network and infect a website with malware that is automatically downloaded onto a user's computer when they visit the site. In all cases, their goal is to trick users into infecting their computers by themselves.
How to avoid installation of malware?
It is important to take several steps to protect against malware, such as using up-to-date antivirus software, keeping the operating system and installed programs up to date, avoiding suspicious downloads or links, and being cautious when opening emails or messages from unknown sources.
It is also recommended to avoid clicking shady advertisements and allowing dubious websites to show notifications.
If you believe that your computer is already infected, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate infiltrated malware.

Extract the downloaded archive and run the Autoruns.exe file.
In the Autoruns application, click "Options" at the top and uncheck "Hide Empty Locations" and "Hide Windows Entries" options. After this procedure, click the "Refresh" icon.
Check the list provided by the Autoruns application and locate the malware file that you want to eliminate.
You should write down its full path and name. Note that some malware hides process names under legitimate Windows process names. At this stage, it is very important to avoid removing system files. After you locate the suspicious program you wish to remove, right click your mouse over its name and choose "Delete".
After removing the malware through the Autoruns application (this ensures that the malware will not run automatically on the next system startup), you should search for the malware name on your computer. Be sure to enable hidden files and folders before proceeding. If you find the filename of the malware, be sure to remove it.
Reboot your computer in normal mode. Following these steps should remove any malware from your computer. Note that manual threat removal requires advanced computer skills. If you do not have these skills, leave malware removal to antivirus and anti-malware programs.
These steps might not work with advanced malware infections. As always it is best to prevent infection than try to remove malware later. To keep your computer safe, install the latest operating system updates and use antivirus software. To be sure your computer is free of malware infections, we recommend scanning it with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows.
