Fraud as a Service (FaaS)

do blog da RSA:


A recent discovery by RSA researchers shows a new FaaS offering that is being marketed directly via a popular social network. The sale item: a customized botnet panel programmed to work with the Zeus Trojan – both reworked by what appears to be an Indonesian-speaking malware developer.

Beyond having compiled a working Zeus Trojan kit, the developer customized an attractive control panel for the admin (basic and familiar in functionality, and taken from previous Zeus versions), the developer and his team created a demo website for potential buyers – which they have no qualms about sharing publicly, and best of all—a Facebook page with frequent updates and information about botnets, exploits, cybercrime, and their own product (Zeus v 1.2.10.1).
