Citadel trojan pulled from Russia's public underground market
The Citadel trojan is being pulled underground by its authors who fear an impending law enforcement crackdown, researchers at security firm RSA said this week.
Citadel, built on the shoulders of Zeus, was one of the most advanced and quality trojans available, with a sales price of nearly $2,500.
It rose to fame for being the first crimeware kit to include a customer relationship management (CRM) module where clientele could request new features from Citadel's team of software developers. But fearing authorities are hot on their heels, Citadel's creators have announced the trojan will be pulled from the public Russian underground market, to be likely only sold to users whose reputation for which existing customers have vouched.
