Cryptoistic is a malware that was compiled on April 2nd, 2020, and is designed to exploit and damage computer systems. It appears to be part of a trend of trojanizing cryptocurrency-related apps and was circulated at the same time as TinkaOTP and CoinGoTrade. While CoinGoTrade is written primarily in Objective-C and C, Cryptoistic is written in Swift and contains a lot of bridged code from Objective-C. This may indicate a developer more familiar with the older programming language. The main purpose of Cryptoistic is to trick users into creating a single account with a fake platform and then using it to manage multiple accounts on legitimate platforms such as kraken.com, huobi.por, and binance.com. It is not clear how successful Cryptoistic has been in achieving its objectives, but it represents a significant threat to users who are unaware of its existence. Overall, Cryptoistic is just one example of the increasing sophistication of malware and the need for individuals and organizations to take proactive steps to protect themselves from these threats. This includes keeping software up to date, avoiding suspicious downloads and emails, and using antivirus software to detect and remove malware infections.
