Rootkit Banker - now also to 64-bit

Yesterday Kaspersky Lab detected the first rootkit banker created to infect 64-bit systems. It was detected in a drive-by-download attack made by Brazilian cybercriminals.

We found a malicious Java applet inserted in a popular Brazilian website. The attack was made using a malicious applet in such a way as to infect users running old versions of the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) and was prepared to infect users running versions of both 32 and 64 bits systems.

It stated it affected old versions of JRE. If you have Java installed (which I don't) then be sure you have the lasted update. I read an article a few months ago that Java was the most attacked software so I removed it from my sysem and so far I have only run into one site that needed Java and it was no big deal. I use Secunia PSI to monitor for needed security updates.
