Abstract

The Avalanche crime group, the world's most prolific phishing gang, has moved from using conventional phishing to solely propagating Zeus, the most famous and stealthy password-stealing malware, say security researchers in a new report.

The Anti Phishing Working Group's "Global Phishing Survey: Trends and Domain Name Use in 1H2010" says Zeus doesn't need the victim's cooperation to surrender financial account credentials.
