How Your Bank Accounts Can Be Stolen With Zeus Virus?

The 'Zeus Trojan Horse' Virus once again had a come back. According to a resource, it has an ability to drain your Bank accounts easily.

Zeus Virus can propagate through phishing messages that are generated from the account that was already compromised with phishing. That phished account will then start sending messages to your friends containing links to the ads and would ask them to simply check-out the video or product by clicking on such links. This way the virus will go viral.

Readers are requested to stay refrain from clicking such links, because they might end up getting their accounts compromised The virus is very sophisticated, so that it could replace the website of a bank with the mimicked page of its own.

That fake page could then ask for your security information and some other important data that could be easily sold in black market.

According to many sources, perhaps it has been confirmed that those pages are being hosted by Russian Mafia (known as Russian Business Network as well).

About Zeus(Virus)

The virus is well-known for what it use to do. It was detected once back in 2007, and after that detection it started to spread online. The virus is well-designed so that if you would click on it, the possible and important data like Passwords and Bank Accounts can be stolen easily.

Does Facebook Took Action Against It?

Facebook is aware of it, but it is unlikely that Facebook is going to take any action against it.

The founder of advocacy group Fans Against Kounterfeit Enterprise (FAKE) said that he was trying to alert Facebook about this issue to take action against it as soon as possible, but unluckily he was not satisfied well with their response.

Those who are using windows should stay much careful about this issue. It has been said that Windows devices are much infected with this virus. Hence, Mac OS X or Linux are still safe of this virus.

Some countries like USA and UK are badly infected, though, India, Russia, Canada and France are also infected with the virus at some moderate  limits. Some other countries like Australia, Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, Chile, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Indonesia and some other South-East Asian and European countries are less affected by this virus.


  1. i want that virus

  2. And I want protection against this virus? Which antivirus will suffice on Windows?

  3. I don't understand what's the big polemic all about. Zeus has been out for ages, nobody knows how long it has been out, but it's definetly been out there more than 5 years. Why are Ehackingnews, Thehackernews, all other IT news and blogs that excited about it?

    In my opinion Zeus has been used all the time and also the self propagating feature has been avalivable for ages. Some people just decided to create a bigger botnet and that got to the eye of researchers. What's the new thing of this exact botnet(as the botnet has been in use for ages and also the USB infecting has been there.) that everyone are talking about it?
