Zeus Trojan infects 74,000 PCs in global botnet | Tech News on ZDNet

More than 74,000 PCs at nearly 2,500 organizations around the world were compromised over the past year-and-a-half, in a botnet infestation designed to steal login credentials to bank sites, social networks and email systems, a security firm said on Wednesday.

The systems were infected with the Zeus Trojan, and the botnet was dubbed ‘Kneber’ after a username that linked the infected PCs on corporate and government systems, according to NetWitness.
