Trojan intercepts bank tokens

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 1:56 pm

A newly discovered Trojan is intercepting the TAN codes used as security tokens by customers of two major German banks, Postbank and Deutsche Bank, according to antivirus experts.

Trojan-Spy.Win32.Bancos.pw is changing the security landscape once again, as it is able to intercept HTTPS traffic and obtain the security token pass-code. When the customer tries to enter a TAN code, an error message appears. Phishing scammers, if they are quick enough, can then enter the code themselves.
