Shylock Financial Malware Back and Targeting Two Dozen Major Banks
Two dozen major U.S. and European banks are in the crosshairs of the Shylock, or Caphaw, financial malware of late, and victims who trade with one of the 24 financial institutions are at risk of giving up their credentials and losing assets in their accounts.
Malware researchers have noticed a rise in infections of late; the malware has been in circulation since 2011, however. While the initial infection point is unknown, the malware is adept at hiding its tracks. It uses a Domain Generation Algorithm to route phone-home traffic through a number of IPs created using self-signed SSL certificates.
