Apache plug-in doles out Zeus attack
Anti-virus outfit Eset has discovered a malicious Apache module in the wild that serves up malware designed to steal banking credentials.
As the company states in this post, the module, dubbed Linux/Chapro, is already being used to inject a version of Win32/Zbot (Zeus) into content served by the compromised Web servers.
The attack points the victim to a Lithuanian server running the Sweet Orange exploit kit. The Sweet Orange authors claim it has a 10 to 25 percent infection rate and can drive 150,000 unique users to its customers, according to ThreatPost.
