• PLXsert has release a high-risk threat advisory. Yummba webinject tools are being used by malicious actors to steal online banking credentials.  On machines compromised with malware such as the Zeus crimeware toolkit, attackers use webinjects to insert custom elements into web pages such that the pages appear legitimate to end users. The altered pages are often used to steal private information when customers use online banking sites. ATSengine is used to automatically transfer funds out of customer accounts. 

The Yummba Webinject Tools Threat Advisory includes PLXsert’s analysis and details, including:
• How webinjects work
• Co-resident malware, such as Zeus and ATSengine
• Potential banking targets
• Analysis of the code
• Types of data stolen 
• Vulnerability mitigation

Download the PLXsert threat advisory at www.stateoftheinternet.com/yummba.

Get the details about a massive 321 Gbps DDoS attack and #cybersecurity   trends in PLXsert’s Q3 2014 State of the Internet - Security Report, just released by Akamai. 

Compared to the same quarter a year ago, Q3 2014 had stand-out increases in DDoS attack metrics, including average attack bandwidth and average peak packets per second values. Average attack bandwidth in Q3 was up substantially compared to a year ago – 389 percent – driven in part by extremely large attacks in Q3 2014, 17 of which reached or exceeded 100 Gbps. Peak packets-per-second attack volume also increased dramatically – 366 percent – compared to Q3 last year. Attacks with both high bandwidth and high volume are made possible by multi-vector attacks, which were used 9 percent more often in Q3 2014 than in the same quarter a year ago. 

Total DDoS attacks were 22 percent higher and 5 percent longer in this year’s Q3 compared to a year ago. Infrastructure-based attacks were much more popular than in the past. Infrastructure-layer attacks were used 43 percent more often in the most recent quarter, and application-layer attacks were used a corresponding 44 percent less frequently than in Q3 2013.
