Take extreme precautions, you could be in danger: Jupyter, the dangerous virus that could be stealing your bank details without you noticing
With the passage of time and the growth of the Internet, new technological advances arrived in software of all kinds, from video games to technical or security, and along with them the use of harmful programs for users’ computers and data also advanced. Most of the malware It is created for this function, to infiltrate the user’s devices and it no longer matters if it is not only the computer, in order to access the economic or personal information of the affected person. In the middle of 2020 arises Jupyter, a program much more powerful than its predecessors that will completely ignore many antivirus.

Therefore, the cybercriminals who have developed it can potentially take over all the profiles of a user ”. This is how they access bank account numbers and other sensitive information
According Panda Security, Jupyter is designed to let “backdoors” in all the systems that it can affect and this is how hackers can access a victim’s computer or device, collect all the information, install even more malware to mine cryptocurrencies or spread the infection to other devices. Unfortunately, Jupyter is constantly updated by its developers as if it were an app, to prevent antivirus programs from detecting the cyber danger it represents.
How to prevent a Jupyter infection
“Thanks to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, we are able to quickly correlate events and test hypotheses and thus predict the behavior patterns of malware and other types of cybercriminal attacks to unmask them before they have time to steal or destroy our identity digital”.
During the second week of November, Jupyter received its last update according to Panda Security but there were other moments in the year that are strongly dedicated to improving this program and an example of this was in May, since Jupyter received no less than nine patches to its code with the sole aim of circumventing the growing security systems. Panda Security It always recommends having the best security software that is updated at all times and of course, not downloading programs from the internet without using the official stores certified by the systems in which they are managed. In the same way, the usual indication, please do not open emails or notifications if you are not totally sure of its origin.
