Malware authors can sometimes be creative in order to manipulate their human targets on the one hand and to circumvent security products, too. The experts of G DATA’s SecurityLabs analyzed a specially crafted Microsoft Word document the attackers used to install a rather famous banking Trojan called Dridex. This malicious document connects to a perfectly legitimate website to download the final payload. We assume that these two elements were chosen to trick security products. This scam is used more and more often to attack businesses, especially SMBs, in various countries.

The Andromeda/Gamarue botnet is on the rise again
Attackers use complex multi-stage macro dropper to deliver malware

Attacks carried out with documents pepped up with macros seem to become in vogue again. G DATA’s security experts have analyzed several cases within the last weeks, in which active content in documents triggers an infection. The experts want to explain two different approaches for the same current goal: infect the user with malware that enlists the machine as zombie PC in the Andromeda/Gamarue botnet.

G DATA introduces extensive software updates

Carrying out transfers quickly, checking current account balances, setting up new standing orders, at any time, at home or on the go – 57 percent of the people in the European Union are already using online banking (source: Eurostat). Cyber criminals know this too, and try to infect computers with highly complex digital malware to get hold of login data. According to the European Cybercrime Centre (EC3), 12 percent of EU citizens have experienced online fraud. The unique BankGuard technology in G DATA security solutions offers comprehensive protection against banking Trojans. With their new features and extensive software updates, G DATA ANTIVIRUS, G DATA INTERNET SECURITY and G DATA TOTAL PROTECTION now offer even more effective protection for banking transactions and shopping online. The security solutions are available from April 2015.

Every 18 seconds a new mobile malware strain for Android is discovered. Find this and other interesting results in the newest G DATA Mobile Malware Report.
Mobile banking and online shopping are booming. Fifty percent of U.S. consumers use a smartphone or tablet for their banking transactions, and 78 percent of Internet users make purchases online. This is a trend that has also attracted the attention of cyber criminals recognizing the exploitation possibilities such as forced subscriptions via premium SMS or calls, extortion via ransomware, and remote control of money transfers.

After the initial reports on the attacks on the #Bundestag (German Federal Parliament), variants of the #Swatbanker family are now putting the Bundestag's intranet on a watch list. The operators of the botnet are apparently trying to steal access data and server responses associated with this site. It is not clear whether this is a new attack or whether the same attackers who were active in May have expanded their pattern of attack.

The recent case of malware distribution via Google AdSense advertising banners is an arresting example of how quickly a huge number of websites across the world can become embroiled in cyber attacks. A supplier of the advertising network has apparently been compromised.

Almost one in ten desktop PCs worldwide is running the Apple OS X operating system (source: Statcounter). In companies, this percentage is even higher. For this reason, cyber criminals use special malware to try to gain access to company networks and Windows PCs via Apple devices. With G DATA ANTIVIRUS FOR MAC, the German IT security specialist is offering a new security solution especially for Macs with OS X that effectively wards off viruses and phishing attacks using real-time protection. The highly efficient scan technology works unobtrusively in the background and does not have any impact on performance. Not only does the security software proactively protect against Mac viruses, it also provides additional protection for all Windows PC systems that are connected to your home or company network: G DATA ANTIVIRUS FOR MAC even detects Windows malware and thus stops it from spreading further. G DATA ANTIVIRUS FOR MAC is now available as a download, at a recommended retail price of EUR 39.95.
