2014/09/26

Softpedia - (International) Researchers discovered that the Dyre (Dyreza) banking trojan is being employed via phishing emails claiming to be from financial institutions and bogus emails purporting to inform of a new voicemail message which include a link to a malware dropper that has five Romanian Portable Executable (PE) resources and downloads a variant of the trojan. The malware relies on the man in the middle (MitM) technique to take over the connection between the client and the server.
