Cybercrooks have developed regionally-targeted banking Trojans that are more likely to slip under the radar of anti-virus defences.[…]

[…]Trusteer cites two pieces of regional malware targeted at UK banking consumers. Silon.var2 crops up on one in every 500 computers in the UK compared to one in 20 000 in the US. Another strain of malware dubbed Agent-DBJP was found on one in 5 000 computers in the UK compared to one in 60 000 in the US[…]

[…]Unlike known malware kits such as Zeus Torpig and Ambler which simultaneously target hundreds of banks and enterprises around the world and are on the radar of all security vendors regional financial malware such as Silon.var2 and Agent.DBJP are highly targeted ” said Mickey Boodaei Trusteer s chief exec.[…]

[…]Silon DBJP and other regional financial malware have been identified through Trusteer s Flashlight service and analysis and investigation results have been shared between participating banks ” explained Amit Klein CTO of Trusteer. “If a bank in a specific region experiences fraud from a new piece of regional malware there is an 80 per cent chance that other banks in the same region will experience in the near future similar losses from this malware ” he added.”
