It appears that cybercriminals are changing up their weapons, trying to diversify their attack tools using a platform that is less well known and therefore harder to detect and block. With so much focus on the ZeuS Trojan, recent attacks utilized a variant of “Bugat,” another Trojan horse that steals information from a compromised computer and sends it to a remote host. Bugat was first discovered in January of this year but, like ZeuS, has seen some different variants. In last week’s attack, LinkedIn users received emails alerting them of a “Contact Request,” and encouraging them to click through to a malicious URL where a java applet fetched and installed the Bugat executable"
