Zeus (also known as Zbot, PRG, Wsnpoem, Gorhax and Kneber) is a Trojan horse that steals banking information by keystroke logging and Form Grabbing. Zeus is spread mainly through drive-by downloads and phishing schemes. First identified in July 2007 when it was used to steal information from the United States Department of Transportation, it became more widespread in March 2009. In June 2009, security company Prevx discovered that Zeus had compromised over 74,000 FTP accounts on websites of such companies as the Bank of America, NASA, Monster, ABC, Oracle, Cisco, Amazon, and BusinessWeek.
Zeus’ current botnet is estimated to include millions of compromised computers (around 3.6 million in the United States). As of October 28, 2009 Zeus has sent out over 1.5 million phishing messages on Facebook. On November 3, 2009 a British couple were arrested for allegedly using Zeus to steal personal data. From November 14–15, 2009 Zeus spread via e-mails purporting to be from Verizon Wireless. A total of nine million of these phishing e-mails were sent.
It was still active in 2010. On July 14, 2010, security firm Trusteer filed a report, which says that the credit cards of more than 15 unnamed US banks have been compromised. A recent outbreak is being called Kneber.
On October 1, 2010, FBI announced it had discovered a major international cyber crime network which had used Zeus to hack into US computers and steal around $70m. More than 90 suspected members of the ring were arrested in the US, and arrests were also made in UK and Ukraine.
