The creators of the ZeuS crimeware toolkit are taking unprecedented measures to protect their product from cyber-criminals who don't want to pay up a hefty price for it. Security researchers report that a complex hardware-based licensing system has been introduced with the latest version of the trojan-generating software.
ZeuS, also known as Zbot, is one of the most widespread and successful computer trojans in circulation today. This trojan is primarily used to steal financial information from organizations and end users alike, with the purpose of fraud, but it can also be employed to capture sensitive data for corporate espionage.
