Tinba banking trojan checks for sandbox before launching

2015/05/06

Softpedia - (International) Security researchers from F-Secure discovered a new variant of the Tiny Banker (Tinba) trojan, which checks for mouse movement and the active window a user is working on to ensure that it is executed on a real machine and not a sandbox before running its malicious routines. The trojan also queries the number of cylinders available to the system's storage device to determine if it is a virtual machine.
