CERT warns on new botnet aimed at attacking bank accounts


US Cert is warning users (alert TA15-286A) about Dridex P2P-Malware botnet, which is designed to steal financial site credentials and possibly drain bank accounts.
  
The link from CERT is here  and was broadcast by email Tuesday morning.
  
The title of the malware mentions P2P, but it appears that the virus is also spread through ordinary phishing attacks.  The malware can apparently also hijack a machine to send DDOS attacks.
