Python devs are being targeted by this massive infostealing malware campaign

Cybersecurity researchers from Checkmarx have discovered a new infostealing campaign that leveraged typosquatting and stolen GitHub accounts to distribute malicious Python packages to the PyPI repository.

In a blog post, Tal Folkman, Yehuda Gelb, Jossef Harush Kadouri, and Tzachi Zornshtain of Checkmarx said they discovered the campaign after a Python developer complained about falling victim to the attack.
