From DarkReading.

PhishLabs’ research division is reporting this month that Vawtrak, a new version of the Gozi Prinimalka Trojan that first reared its ugly head in the mid-2000s, is widening its attack surface and expanding in complexity.

“Advanced Web injects” represent core functionality in this new configuration of the Trojan, which is taking advantage of the disruption of other major botnets such as Shylock and Spy Eye to gain new prominence in the cybercrime market. While financial institutions were the primary target of Vawtrak in the early days, new targets include online retailers, game portals, social networks, and analytics firms in the United States, United Kingdom, Turkey, Slovakia, and Australia.
