Facebook – Zeus Bank Account Stealing Trojan Virus Spreading

Zeus banking Trojan is being aggressively spammed as shared below … Please be careful on anything you click on in Facebook



QUOTE: Be careful what links you click on Facebook. A gang of international cybercrooks has resurrected a six-year-old Trojan virus named Zeus, using it to harvest personal information and drain unsuspecting victims’ bank accounts.


It appears as if the virus threat is being distributed via Facebook groups, especially through spam advertisements offering discount merchandise, counterfeit designer wear, or some similar Facebook scam. The virus made its first reappearance in February of this year, with incidents of infection rapidly growing month-to-month.


Once Zeus infects your computer, the virus lays in wait until you use an online banking account. When you do, the malicious code stores your login and password, using it to empty your coffers. The virus can collect other personal information to sell, as well.
