Researchers in Kaspersky Lab’s Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) have discovered AppleJeus, a new malicious operation by the infamous Lazarus group.
Kaspersky Lab, a developer of secure content and threat management solutions, warned that cybercriminals are growing in confidence. According to the developer, cybercriminals tended to attack users of banking services, seeing it as the weak link in the security chain. But this year, Kaspersky Lab experts anticipate high-stakes targeted cyber-attacks pinpointing the banks. And the fraudsters won’t stop here. Kaspersky Lab security experts expect they will go for broke and try to develop new malware that can take cash directly from ATMs.
