Shylock Trojan aims for global targets, Symantec warns
The prodigious Shylock man-in-the-browser (MitB) banking Trojan is still being upgraded as part of a campaign to migrate from its traditional targets in UK financial services to foreign ones, Symantec has reported.
Malware platforms are constantly evolving but the new Shylock modules wouldn't sound out of place on a high-end commercial software product.
These include a new DiskSpread utility that allows the Trojan to infect external and USB drives, a plug-in for scraping FTP and other passwords, and something called "BackSocks" that turns the compromised PC into a proxy server.
