Banking trojan abuses Pinterest in C&C routines

2014/12/16

Securityweek - (International) Researchers with Trend Micro identified a variant of the BANKER malware known as TSPY_BANKER.YYSI that is currently targeting users of South Korean banking Web sites via redirection to a phishing site and accesses comments on the Pinterest social network instead of a command and control (C&C) server. The comments are decoded into IP addresses for the server hosting the phishing page.
