Spy Eye Taking on Zeus in Botnet Turf War
Spy Eye's 'Kill Zeus' option is the most aggressive crimeware, says researcher.
According to Computerworld, Spy Eye has recently added a feature called "Kill Zeus" that removes the Zeus software from the victim's PC. Spy Eye then has exclusive access to usernames and passwords.
Kevin Stevens, a researcher with SecureWorks, calls Spy Eye's "Kill Zeus" option the most aggressive crimeware, as the software can also snatch data as it is sent back to a Zeus command-and-control server.
