Sunspot financial malware targets Windows

Quote:
Trusteer identified Sunspot, a little known Windows malware platform that has been in circulation for some time, but was never previously recognized for its financial fraud capabilities.



It is currently targeting North American financial institutions and has already achieved SpyEye and Zeus–like infection rates in some regions.

There are confirmed fraud losses associated with Sunspot, so the threat is real. Sunspot is another example of the growing list of financial malware that is flooding the Internet.

Sunspot targets 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms from Windows XP through Windows 7, and is capable of installing in non-administrator and administrator accounts.
