Zeus targeting government and military workers

Share this article:
A new campaign of the password-stealing Zeus trojan is targeting workers from government and military departments in the United States and United Kingdom, according to security researchers at Websense. The trojan is being distributed through spoofed emails claiming to come from the U.S. National Intelligence Council. The bogus messages contain subject lines such as “Report of the National Intelligence Council." The emails aim to lure users into downloading a document about the "2020 project," which actually is Zeus. — AM
