CoreBot becomes full-fledged banking trojan


Securityweek - (National) IBM researchers determined that the CoreBot trojan has evolved to become a full-fledged banking trojan and includes new features such as browser hooking, real-time form grabbing, a virtual network computing (VNC) module for remote control, and man-in-the-middle (MitM) functionality, among other features. The new CoreBot's data theft routines have evolved, which has made the trojan similar to the Zeus, Dridex, and Dyre trojans.
