Hackers are targeting other hackers by infecting their tools with malware
Quote: A newly discovered malware campaign suggests that hackers have themselves become the targets of other hackers, who are infecting and repackaging popular hacking tools with malware.

Cybereason’s  Amit Serper found that the attackers in this years-long campaign are taking existing hacking tools — some of which are designed to exfiltrate data from a database through cracks and product key generators that unlock full versions of trial software — and injecting a powerful remote-access trojan. 

When the tools are opened, the hackers gain full access to the target’s computer.
