Clipboard Monitoring: Crypto clippers operate by monitoring the clipboard of an infected device. When you copy a cryptocurrency wallet address (e.g., a Bitcoin or Ethereum address) to your clipboard, the malware detects this action.
Address Replacement: Once the malware detects a cryptocurrency address in the clipboard, it replaces it with the attacker’s address. This means that when you paste the address into a cryptocurrency transaction, you inadvertently send your funds to the attacker’s wallet instead of the intended recipient.
Stealthy Theft: The victim is often unaware that the address in their clipboard has been altered. As a result, they proceed with the transaction, believing that they are sending funds to the correct recipient.
