AhnLab Identifies New Malware Threat To Banking Credentials

South Korean security vendor AhnLab, Inc. has issued warning about variations to the SpyEye trojan and ZeuS bot that attempt to steal personal banking data, as well as incoming SMS messages, phone numbers, device identification numbers and other data that are then uploaded to command-and-control servers.

At this point, the company reports that the attack has mostly been focused on banks located in Germany.
