Vawtrak challenges almighty ZeuS as king of the botnets | Article

From The Register

Crooks behind Vawtrak, a dangerous banking Trojan, are ramping up its reach and sophistication, security firms have warned. 

Vawtrak currently ranks as the single most dangerous threat, according to PhishLabs. Only Zeus and its many variants (GameOver, KINS, ZeusVM, Zberp, etc.) taken as a single malware “family” would outrank Vawtrak.

The malware is being used as part of a Crimeware-as-a-Service (CaaS) biz model, according to Sophos.
