Windows 7: Neverquest Trojan: Built to Steal from Hundreds of Banks

Neverquest Trojan: Built to Steal from Hundreds of Banks

Neverquest is a new banking trojan that spreads itself via social media, email and file transfer protocols. It possesses the capacity to recognize hundreds of online banking and other financial sites. When an infected user attempts to login to one of the sites the trojan reacts by activating itself and pilfering its victim’s credentials.

Neverquest then relays the stolen credentials back to a command and control server. Once there, the attackers can use the credentials to log into affected accounts via virtual network computing (VNC). VNC is essentially a shared desktop system, so the criminals basically use the victim’s computer to log into the victim’s online bank and perform the theft. It makes it quite impossible for the bank to distinguish legitimate users from criminals.
