Was there any malware in the wild..

Post by kurt2121 » Thu Aug 31, 2017 9:20 pm

that collects ALL the POST requests/packets that a browser creates?

So when certain malware is looking for passwords and stuff, I read that some have the ability to collect the POST that the browser creates.
I also heard that this kind of malware can specifically target passwords and stuff. Has there ever been any malware in the wild that collects ALL the POST requests made by the browser and not just the ones that carry passwords or credit card information?

Any examples would be great too!

Thanks!

this is called form grabbing and most of banking malware does that.

But doesn't that just target passwords and usernames from banking sites? I was wondering if there was any that just scooped up all the POST the browser made.

No. Those I analyzed sent all POST requests to the c2.
