    A newly discovered banking Trojan departs from the regular tactics observed by malware researchers by choosing visible installation and by adding social engineering components.

    CamuBot appeared last month in Brazil targeting companies and organizations from the public sector. The victim is the one installing the malware, at the instructions of a human operator that pretends to be a bank employee.

    The malware itself is disguised as a security application, marked with the bank's logo and brand imaging.

    "To carry out their attacks, CamuBot operators begin with some basic reconnaissance to find businesses that bank with a certain financial institution. They then initiate a phone call to the person who would likely have the business’s bank account credentials," experts from IBM X-Force Research team write in a blog post today.
