Trojan Keylogger fraud disclosed

22 October 2010

Arrest of a criminal group accused of major fraud has been reported by UK and US authorities. Criminals supposedly had stolen over 10 million US dollars from bank accounts using viruses that capture user data.

The crime was committed using a ZeuS bot-net management tool which is popular among cyber-fraudsters. Also a Zbot phishing trojan was used, which steals bank account passwords and various private data.

Stolen data had been used to transfer funds of fraud victims to criminals’ accounts and then specially recruited persons (called “mules” or “drops”) would withdraw the money. Such “mules” make up majority of captured suspects, but the scam leader has been arrested as well. A total of 20 people has been captured, 17 are yet to be located and over a hundred are in the suspects list.

Most of the suspects have Russian and ex USSR origins. But general Russian council in New Your has been notified by FBI about only 4 Russian citizens being captured. It is most likely that the rest of criminals with russian names did not have Russian citizenship or were using fake documents.

Symantec Ubiquity — a new anti-malware tech

19 October 2010

Symantec has release Ubiquity — a brand new technology against evolving malware.

Traditional threat detection approaches (semantic analysis and matching against virus signatures) proved to be ineffective against self-changing polymorphic or less spread viruses. Such viruses present a considerable security threat: in 2009, Symantec had detected over 240 millions unique instances of malware, many of which were represented with only a single copy.

New technology is an attempt to solve two issues with modern algorithms at once:
inability to fight against kind of threats mentioned above, and low performance speed. The core of new solution is Global Intelligence Network (GIN), which stores data about all applications launched by Ubiquity technology users. Based on this data, the system creates software ratings — a white list for trusted software and a black list for suspicious software. By now, the system already has ratings for 1.5 billion files and this number increases by 22 million per week. Symantec claims that the solution outperforms any other antivirus scanners since it excludes files trusted according to GIN.

Symantec researches cloud computing services for over 2 years and Ubiquity technology is most likely to become a way to incorporate long developed Quorum technology into Norton 2011 and Hosted Endpoint protection products. Furthermore, it’s planned to extend applications of this technology by using it in Symantec Web Gateway and other Symantec corporate solutions.

It’s worth noting that similar cloud computing logic is used in Kaspersky Software since 2009. It’s called “Kaspersky Security Network” and it has proved to be effective.
