Submission + - Malware Steals US Government Documents (eweekeurope.co.uk)

geek4 writes: A malware campaign has used the Zeus Trojan to infiltrate US government offices and steal data

The crew behind the Kneber botnet that made headlines last year may have surfaced again in a malware campaign targeting employees of various governments.

The botnet, which pushes out the Zeus Trojan, was spotted around Christmas time spamming out malware through a phony holiday message from the White House. Those who received the card and either clicked on a link to an e-card or opened a malicious attachment were compromised.
