Latest Zeus Botnet 2016
Posted 02 May 2016 - 09:11 AM
Zeus is a toolkit that provides a malware creator all of the tools required to build and administer a botnet. The Zeus tools are primarily designed for stealing banking information, but they can easily be used for other types of data or identity theft. A Control Panel application is used to maintain/update the botnet, and to retrieve/organize recovered information. A configurable Builder tool allows to create the executables that will be used to infect victim’s computers. These executables are usually detected as ZBot by anti-virus software.
There is no single Zeus botnet. The toolkit is a commercial product that is sold to many different users, and distributed freely to many more. Each of them can create one or more botnets of their own, so the number of Zeus botnets is likely quite large.
The latest version of the toolkit typically sells for about $700 USD to trusted buyers, with the bot source code possibly available for a much larger sum. After a few months the new toolkit version is released as a free “public” version, which is probably meant to serve as a promotion for the commercial version. The public version may not include all of the latest functions, and the documentation is minimal. Modified versions of the public toolkit have also been offered for sale at lower prices by third party developers, sometimes known as “modders”.
