Specialists of the antivirus company ESET announced the spread of a new banking Trojan on the network. The malware, dubbed DanaBot, initially attacked Australian users, but now more and more people in Germany, Italy, Poland and Austria are becoming its victims.
The detected virus enters the PC through spam mailings. After opening an infected letter, allegedly sent by the bank, a control program is secretly installed on the computer. With its help, cybercriminals can steal passwords for Internet banking and other services.
As noted in a message from ESET, the DanaBot developers are constantly making various changes to the virus, which makes it difficult to combat it.
