Dyre banking trojan jumps out of sandbox


Threatpost - (International) Security researchers at Seculert discovered a new strain of the Dyre banking trojan, called Dyreza, that evades detection by checking for the number of processor cores running on an infected machine, and terminating itself if there is only one. The researchers also noted that the new strain changed to a new user agent and included other minor updates to avoid signature-based detection products.
