A new virus has been detected that specifically targets customers that bank electronically.
Tatanarg has all the standard banking Trojan functions:
- Disables or disrupts security software
- Kills other malware that may interfere with its mission
- Modifies, or injects, fake HTML in the browser
- Enables remote access
The Trojan captures sensitive information, including details of accessed internet banking sites and sends it to the remote attacker.
While this new Trojan should be a concern for all customers, we want to highlight the importance of protecting your computer from all threats.
It is not realistic to think that everyone can be alerted to every threat. There are too many threats and new ones being launched every day. If you choose to participate in online activities, being aware of the risk associated with the online community is necessary to protect yourself and your computer.
