Kneber botnet

Hello

New to the forum - question - I just read an article about the - Kneber botnet - I've searched the Mcafee Site for information on this malware and I cannot find a single article. I'm assuming Mcafee hasn't heard of this threat or their virus protection software cannot do anything about it. The information on the internet seems to indicate - this malware has been able to inflitrate and steal user login info. from sites like Yahoo - Facebook - etc Does anyone have any info. on this subject - i.e. - is there any way to find out if your login info has been compromised and is there any program that can detect and/or remove this on an individuals computer - thanks - mick

Yes. I'm interested too. I have a business network and other than news channels no one seems to have anything posted. I've searched everywhere on McAfee.

Re: Kneber botnet

I was also sent a news article regarding the Kneber botnet from a coworker.  From my checking of other sites, this may also be classified as the Zeus trojan and McAfee has details on their steps for remediation.  I'm not confident this is related to the 'Operation Aurora' information.  If I learn more I will post.

Re: Kneber botnet

Or you could just run a scan with your McAfee product, assuming you have posted here, because you are using McAfee

Re: Kneber botnet

Historically we've been detecting Zeus and its variants for 2+ years now. We have a nice Vil Article for this and also a FAQ on Kneber here. Hope this information is useful to you.
