“GameOver Zeus is a classic email-based threat. It can present a fake online banking webpage to trick a user into entering personal and financial information,” stated Greg Coticchia, CEO and cofounder of Malcovery Security. “Once deployed, the cybercriminals would drain victims’ bank accounts into a series of foreign accounts they controlled. With actionable intelligence, such as Malcovery’s Todays Top Threats (T3), enterprises can stop and prevent these type of attacks more effectively than with existing solutions.”
