Microsoft has made available for download a special edition of its Security Inteligence report that is focused entirely on the battle it’s waging against Zbot also known as Zeus.
Zbot is the moniker used to refer to a family of password-stealing Trojans, and one of the most prevalent bots in the wild today.
In the “Battling the Zbot Threat”
Microsoft Security Intelligence Report, the software giant looks at the background, functionality, prevalence, and geographical distribution of this piece of malicious code.
At the same time, the Redmond company reveals that equipping the Malicious Software Removal Tool (MSRT) to fight Zbot in October 2010 has been a move with real impact on the malware.
