The US ICS-CERT has issued a warning about an ongoing sophisticated malware campaign that has hit a number of industrial control systems (ICSs) environments using a variant of the BlackEnergy malware.
Turla, also known as Snake or Uroburos is one of the most sophisticated ongoing cyber-espionage campaigns.
Malware peddlers have been spotted impersonating popular coffeehouse chain Starbucks in order to trick users into downloading a rootkit-equipped variant of the Zeus banking Trojan.
Researchers from German antivirus company G Data have discovered and analyzed a complex rootkit with spying capabilities and believe that it has been created and employed by Russian-speaking hackers working for a nation-state.
As expected, variants of the infamous Zeus banking Trojan are becoming more adept at hiding their presence from users and AV solutions, and at preventing malware analysis tools from examining them.
