Next generation of banking trojans

The Register reports that the bad guys steped up quite a bit.

Now quite sophisticated tactics:

  • spreading Trojans via JS and PDF flaws from somewhat legimate pages
  • reading keystrokes / logins
  • withdrawing only from positive accounts, trying to obscure the withdraws
  • taking screenshots (sounds like partial biomechanical processing)
  • Using money mules to obfuscate the money trail

It’s a dangerous internet out there
