Zeus Infection Spoofing Bitdefender AV Webroot Threat Blog
Zeus Infection Spoofing Bitdefender AV Webroot Threat Blog: Over the Christmas period, we here at Webroot have noticed a large amount of Zeus infections that are spoofing the Bitdefender name.
While infections spoofing AV companies aren’t unusual, it’s been a while since we have seen such a spike on one particular vendor in such a short time period. Most of the names are slight variations, but the numbers are impressive – Overall, we have seen 40,000 unique MD5`s in the last week alone!
The infection being dropped is from the Zeus family of infections, which are banking Trojans designed to steal login information when the user logs into their online banking website.
