Our previous report, “SpyEye. Analysis of a new crimeware alternative scenario,” addressed known technical issues involving the activities of this threat.
In this second part we present the exclusive interview by Ben Koehl, Crimeware Researcher of Malware Intelligence.

We also see the source code for the Zeus Killer addition.

From coding to infrastructure support to public relations.
