New Variant of Zeus Malware Titled “GameOver” Sent via Phishing Scam

The FBI has issued a warning about the latest identify theft/bank swindling malware, called “Gameover”. The “Gameover” scam is initiated through a phishing scheme that sends fictitious e-mails to a bunch of users from the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA), the Federal Reserve Bank, or the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). After opening the email and selecting the hyperlink, the user is forwarded to a phony website that automatically installs the Trojan without their knowledge or assistance, then eventual access to the victim’s bank account becomes accessible to the scammer.
