Solo attacker likely responsible for phishing campaign, delivering Zeus variant | Article

From SC Magazine

Phishing emails, a phishing kit and phony browser alerts are being used to steal credentials and deliver a variant of the Zeus trojan, and researchers with PhishLabs – the security firm that identified the threat – believe the operations are being carried out by a single individual.

To deliver the Zeus variant via phony browser alerts, the attacker first sends out phishing emails through compromised email accounts, a PhishLabs post indicates. The phishing email makes reference to a wire transfer and asks recipients to verify by opening an attachment in the email.
