The developers of the Trojan Cridex, also detected as Geodo, Feodo and Bugat, have released another version of this dreadful data collector Trojan called Dridex. Dridex main duty is to collect bank security data by adding automated scripts containing recurrent assignments into the Microsoft Office Package. Dridex started its infection campaign using Microsoft Word to dispatch messages allegedly including financial documentation. Then, when the computer user opens the corrupted document, the added scripts may start executing their assignments. By collecting your online banking-related data and sending it to remote servers, Dridex makes it possible for its creators to access your banking account and transfer the available money to their personal accounts. As any Trojan infection, Dridex is a highly harmful infection that must be removed upon detection. Manual removal is possible, however, due to its complexity, the safest removal method is using an up-to-date and reliable malware exterminator.
