Malware operators using common attack methods on Discord

Every day, cyber attackers work to find new ways to launch more sophisticated and disruptive attacks, bypass identity security, and steal corporate data. All companies, regardless of size, are potential targets and must do their best to minimize risks.

More specifically, malware operators have begun abusing online chat services to gain access to private conversations, impersonate victims, and steal sensitive information. And with over 300 million active users, the highly popular online chat service Discord is the perfect tool to carry out such identity-related attacks. Discord was initially aimed at gaming communities, but is now used by a more diverse population, including developers looking to create apps that free up time to work on more complex projects.
