Bank Insiders Charged in ZeuS Cybercrime Smackdown

November 8, The Register – (International)

Six corrupt bank insiders turned ZeuS money mule suspects have been arrested in Moldova. All half dozen of the suspects worked in local banks in the east European country.

Investigators believe the suspects specialized in laundering Western Union and MoneyGram payments received from co-conspirators in Western nations that can ultimately be traced back to compromised corporate and personal bank accounts. The arrests in Moldova follow charges against alleged members of a massive cybercrime ring estimated to have raked in up to $70 million by using the ZeuS banking Trojan to steal online banking log-in credentials and loot accounts.

Further arrests may follow in Moldova and elsewhere, a Washington Post staffer turned security blogger reports.

New Improved Trojans Target Banks

November 8, Bank Info Security – (International)

Security researchers are warning financial institutions about the Qakbot Trojan, a rare kind of malware that is allegedly infiltrating large banks and other global financial institutions. It is unlike other types of malware because it has the ability to spread like a worm, but still infect users like a Trojan. Named for its primary executable file, _qakbot.dll, the Trojan is not new, but its qualities and difference in attack set it head and shoulders above other more well-known Trojans, such as Zeus, in that it can infect multiple computers at a time. It is the only Trojan known to exclusively target U.S. banks, said an RSA security researcher.

The more well-known Trojans and their variants, Zeus and Spyeye, are all available for sale on the black market, said the researcher who is head of new technologies, consumer identity protection at RSA, the security division of EMC. First discovered by Symantec in 2007, Qakbot is likely being run by one group. It is likely an organized crime group developed it, focusing on their own specific methods, and tailored the Trojan to a specific segment — large banks and their commercial customers.
