A new version of the data-stealing trojan Zeus is for the first time able to successfully exploit Mozilla's Firefox browser to commit sophisticated online banking fraud, according to security firm Trusteer.

“We expect this new version of Zeus to significantly increase fraud losses, since nearly 30 percent of internet users bank online with Firefox and the infection rate for this piece of malware is growing faster than we have ever seen before,” Amit Klein, CTO of Trusteer and head of the company's research organization, said in a statement.

This variant of the malware is spreading rapidly via compromised websites and in spam messages, Boodaei said.
