Securityweek - (International) A researcher from IBM Security reported August 14 that a new variant of the Bugat financial malware (also known as Cridex or Geodo) was spotted infecting computers in the U.K. and the Middle East region. The new variant uses HTML injections and scripts and an attack structure similar to that used by the Gameover Zeus malware and attempts to redirect victims to fake financial institution Web sites in order to steal login information.
