Trojan lovechild in production - ZeuS/SpyEye

Unread postby Sludge3000 » January 25th, 2011, 4:46 pm

Security researchers have got their hands on the first sample of code from the merger of the ZeuS and SpyEye cybercrime Trojan toolkits.

Posts on Russian underground forums last year suggested that Slavik/Monstr, the author of ZeuS, was "retiring"1 from cybercrime and handing over the ZeuS source code to Gribodemon/Harderman, the creator of SpyEye. ZeuS has long been the root cause of many instances of banking fraud, while SpyEye is a much newer and even more aggressive addition to the scene. Both Zeus and SpyEye are sold commercially as a means to create customised Trojans, typically designed to steal banking login credentials from compromised PCs.
