E-Banking Trojan Tool Available Free From BitDefender

BitDefender UK : 15 April, 2011  (New Product)
BitDefender has released a free removal tool to remove an instant messaging worm that compromises security software enabling access to e-banking transactions
E-Banking Trojan Tool Available Free From BitDefender

BitDefender has announced the availability of a free removal tool against an aggressive family of e-Banking Trojans capable of disabling some security software.


The new e-threat, dubbed Trojan.Agent.VB.HS, comes bundled with an IM worm and once installed, hijacks e-banking websites to phishing web servers in addition to running pay-per-click advertising abuse campaigns through invisible browser windows. “What is particularly significant about this family of malware is that it tries to subvert the antimalware solution the user may have installed in order to be able to carry on the abuse unhindered,” said Catalin Cosoi, Head of the BitDefender Online Threats Lab.


“Users who don’t have a security solution installed at all will be unable to access any of the security vendors’ websites to access antivirus software or a removal tool. So, updating your security software and downloading a removal tool as soon as possible are the best ways to stay safe from this threat. In a rapidly-evolving environment of cybercrime, the antimalware product may be the last line of user defence. Cyber-crooks know that and they are going through great lengths to ensure that the user stays unprotected,” Cosoi concluded.


The removal tool can be freely downloaded from the Removal Tools Repository on Malware City, BitDefender’s security blog. BitDefender users are already protected by automatic update.
