Tiny Trojan Targets Turkish Users
It's small -- as in 20 kilobytes small -- but the tiny banking Trojan based on the infamous BlackHole crimeware kit so far has infected more than 60,000 users in Turkey.
Trend Micro and CSIS Security Group have studied the so-called Tinba, Tinybanker, or Zusy malware,and say the information-stealing Trojan is similar to other malware variants with the same purpose. But its size is what sets it most apart: The tiny footprint helps it evade detection by antivirus engines.
Tinba (as in TINy BAnker) targets Windows machines running Internet Explorer and Firefox, and can disable the Mozilla browser's warning page.
