P2P Zeus Performs Critical Update

P2P Zeus, a.k.a. Zbot, has evolved into a powerful bot since its discovery in 2007. It is capable of stealing infected hosts’ banking information, installation of other malware, and other cybercrime-related behavior. Currently, P2P Zeus supports both the UDP and TCP protocols for its various communication tasks including peer list exchange, command-and-control (C&C) server registration, and malware binary updates.

Early this month, our Fortinet botnet monitoring system found out that P2P Zeus has put up a critical update to its P2P botnet.

The users of P2P swear they only get legal bible stories from grandma using P2P so they know they can't get infected with Zbot.
It must of been a Windows Update.
