Trojan.Zbot is a fairly generic backdoor Trojan infection that is closely linked to Mal/VB-AER and the Zeus Trojan, one of the most infamous malware infections. Since 2007, Trojan.Zbot has made headlines when Trojan.Zbot was used to infiltrate and steal information from the Transportation Department of the United States. Since March of 2009, Trojan.Zbot and the Zeus Trojan became widespread, infecting millions of computer from all around the world. ESG security researchers detected thousands of FTP servers of some of the most popular websites that were infected with the Zeus Trojan and Trojan.Zbot. Malware analysts estimate that the botnets associated with Trojan.Zbot cost billions of dollars every year and that a large percentage of phishing messages on Facebook and in spam emails are sent in order to spread malware associated with Trojan.Zbot. In the fall of 2010, the FBI cracked down on the criminal network thought to be responsible for an attack using Trojan.Zbot and the Zeus Trojan that resulted in the theft of more than seventy million dollars from American banks. About ninety people were arrested in relation to these criminal acts in the United States, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom and Ukraine. In 2011, PC security researchers are facing a serious challenge since the source code of Zeus Trojan and Trojan.Zbot were leaked to the public, enabling practically anyone to use Trojan.Zbot to perform their own attacks.
