The Internet's Leading Banking Trojan

The Internet’s Leading Banking Trojan

Zeus, which is also known as Zbot, WSNPOEM, NTOS and PRG, is the most prevalent banking Malware platform for online fraud, and has been licensed by numerous criminal organizations. Zeus has been bundled with various exploit kits and even has been bundled with rogue antivirus software. Since Zeus is a Trojan, it doesn't self-replicate, so it is usually installed by piggy-backing on other malware. It infects PCs, waits for the user to log onto a list of targeted banks and financial institutions, and then steals their credentials which are sent to a remote server in real time. It can also modify, in a user’s browser, the genuine web pages from a bank’s web servers to ask for personal information such as payment card number and PIN, one time passwords, etc.


What you can do to reduce this vulnerability:
 

   1. Install reputable Anti-virus software which has rootkit and spyware detection capabilities. Run live-update and full scan every day if possible;
   2. Regularly install operating system updates;
   3. Install a firewall and close all unnecessary ports;
   4. Use a dedicated computer for financial transactions. This machine should live on an isolated virtual LAN (vLAN), or a physical network firewalled and isolated from the rest of the network;
   5. Restrict Web browser functions, including some or all of the following: running a whitelisting application with only the browser allowed; banning browser plug-ins; disabling JavaScript or ActiveX controls; and if necessary only allowing the required websites to run JavaScript or specified active controls;
   6. Monitor the Internet traffic. Limit access to unknown sites and refrain from downloading content from unproven web sites.
