Banking Trojans flood the enterprise, Android attacks surge
Banking Trojans are growing threat to enterprises, a new Kaspersky Labs study shows. The company detected around 900,000 cyberattacks involving financial malware last year, which is 16% more than in 2017. The most popular banking Trojans were Zeus (Zbot), Gozi, and SpyEye.
Financial malware campaigns often rely on phishing messages to infect targeted systems. In fact, Kaspersky Labs found that 44.7% of all phishing campaigns aimed to deliver banking Trojans. The study also shows a surge in financial malware attacks targeting Android users, with the number of affected users across the globe tripling in 2018 to 1.8 million.
