With the major developers of banking malware laying low, a new crook on
the block has emerged gunning to be top dog in the market.
The developer's new malware is called KINS, and he's selling it for $5,000
a pop, although that price is likely to climb if the malware is a good as
he brags it is.
"[KINS is] a new professional-grade banking Trojan that is very likely
taking its first steps in the cybercrime underground and could be poised
to infect new victims as quickly and effectively as its Zeus, SpyEye and
Citadel predecessors," Limor Kessem, a cybercrime specialist with RSA, the
security division of EMC, wrote in a blog post on Tuesday.
The Trojan is entering the market at an opportune time, as developers of
such major banking malware have either retired, gone into hiding or
otherwise removed their skills from the open market.
