New and 'improved' Gozi Trojan version on the loose
A new, stealthier version of a previously known Russian Trojan horse program called Gozi has been circulating on the Net since April 17 and has already stolen personal data from more than 2000 home users worldwide.
The compromised information includes bank and credit card
account numbers (including CVV codes), Social Security numbers, and
online payment account numbers as well as usernames and passwords. As
with its predecessor, the new version of Gozi is programmed to steal
information from encrypted SSL streams and send the stolen information
to a server based in Russia.
The variant was discovered by Don Jackson, a security researcher with Atlanta-based SecureWorks Inc., who also discovered the original Gozi Trojan back in January.
