In an operation crowned "unprecedented," Europol and the DOJ joined forces and successfully dismantled what was left of the GozNym cybercrime gang that attempted to steal well over $100 million.
GozNym continued its trip around Europe by launching redirection attacks against 13 German banks. The volume of these attacks has spiked in recent months.
IBM X-Force researchers recognized that the GozNym banking malware leverages features from two types of malware to make it double the threat.
The new GozNym hybrid takes the best of both the Nymaim and Gozi ISFB malware to create a powerful Trojan targeting banks in the U.S. and Canada.
