Banking Trojan has targeted Bundestag | Germany | CyberSecurity

Banking Trojan has targeted Bundestag
After the initial reports on the attacks on the Bundestag (German Federal Parliament), variants of the Swatbanker family are now putting the Bundestag's intranet on a watch list. The operators of the botnet are apparently trying to steal access data and server responses associated with this site. It is not clear whether this is a new attack or whether the same attackers who were active in May have expanded their pattern of attack. 

Since the first reports of the attacks on the Bundestag, we have been searching for clues as to the initiators, but as yet there have been no hints as to the origin. Now experts at G DATA have discovered that a group using the Swatbanker banking Trojan has had its eyes on the Bundestag. Swatbanker is also known under the name Geodo and is a successor to Cridex, alias Feodo.

Dan Kirsch's insight:

This is why we need to establish a "Social Media" curriculum that addresses internet safety, cyberbulllying, & digital citizenship ALL together and integrate that with technological situations; such as this to prevent students from becoming victims!!

El #socialmedia de un #profesor lo que puede y no puede hacer

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 25, 2015 10:48 AM

I chose this resource because they way teachers use social media has been a sore spot for many in our building. I support the idea of using social media in a professional construct and I feel that it is a powerful tool. However, even in teacher circles I've witnessed far too much negativity and I'm not sure that those individuals understand that the toxic nature of some posts are doing much damage to our school culture (and the community perceptions). I'm shocked to find that some teachers continue to use some social media to converse with students in non-academic affairs. It is truly not a good idea. I think this resource would be great to distribute during PD that occurs at the beginning of a school year.
