Library items tagged: Zeus

Zeus is the name for a family, or perhaps ecosystem of malware that is created and customised using a single toolkit. Not only does the toolkit generate the executable that infects systems, but it also produces server files that act as the command and control infrastructure for the operator’s botnet. Primarily Zeus is used to steal banking details through the use of keystroke logging and screen captures that are sent from the infected system to the command and control sever.
