    The question is, what type of AV were all of these infected people using? And I would also like to know a bit more about how this cookie stealing malware operates, strangely enough not that many anti-malware tools are focused on this. Only HitmanPro.Alert recently added anti-cookie grabbing protection, but SpyShelter doesn't block access to browser cookies AFAIK. Apparently, this stuff can even bypass 2FA account protection, what the hell?
