Improved Carberp banking malware will target North American banks, Group-IB says

Lucian Constantin | Dec. 18, 2012
The creators of Carberp, a banking Trojan program used exclusively in Russian-speaking countries, have started to sell an improved version of the malware together with custom scripts that would allow cybercriminals to target U.S. online banking customers, according to researchers from Russian security firm Group-IB.

In addition, Carberp customers can develop their own custom Web inject if they know the API (application programming interface) and the proper Web inject structure, he said.

The Carberp authors will probably not get many customers, considering the malware's price, Komarov said. However, they will attract professional customers with experience in running money mule and cashout operations in the U.S., Canada and Australia, he said.
