RSA on the Sinowal Trojan

Source: Speaking of Security (RSA Blog)

The RSA FraudAction Research Lab shares its findings on the Sinowal Trojan, also known as Torpig and Mebroot. Dating back as early as February 2006, the Sinowal Trojan has compromised and stolen login credentials from approximately 300,000 online bank accounts as well as a similar number of credit and debit cards. The criminals behind Sinowal have not only created highly-advanced and malicious crimeware, but have also maintained one of the most hidden and reliable communication infrastructures, which has now been operating for nearly three years.
