“In early April, cybercriminals believed to be of Eastern European origin unleashed a malware that stole $4 million from more than 24 American and Canadian banks in just a few days, security researchers at IBM said today. The hackers combined code from two malware types, known as Nymaim and Gozi, to create GozNym, a Trojan both persistent and powerful, according to a report from IBM’s X-Force branch shown to FORBES ahead of publication. Numerous credit unions and popular e-commerce platforms were also said to have been targeted.”
