Default Zeus Trojan

Zeus Trojan undetectable by most antivirus software protection
A new type of the Zeus Trojan will not be detected by standard antivirus software protection programs, according to Japan-based computer security firm Trend Micro.

Zeus has been used by a syndicate in the recent 6 million pound bank heist in the United Kingdom, and the latest variant can prove more malicious than its original form.

The new type, called TSPY_ZBOT.BYZ, avoids being detected by importing a huge number of application programming interface (APIs). It uses a process called calculable entropy, an ability to seek where in the code particular trigger routines could be hidden. This has hampered the heuristic detection capabilities of most antivirus software protection systems.

“To properly guard against this threat, conventional antivirus is not sufficient,” Julius Dizon, research engineer at Trend Micro said. “Both improved detection techniques and proactive blocking of the websites, working together, can protect users.”

Yet another type of Trojan horse called Zeus.SMEQ has been discovered and the growing number of variants may prove to be tough to tackle for antivirus software protection firms.
