The leader of the crime gang behind the Carbanak and Cobalt malware attacks targeting more than 100 financial institutions worldwide has been arrested in Alicante, Spain.
Symantec claims to have spotted a new campaign that has attempted to exploit SWIFT customers in a very familiar way.
Proofpoint has found what it believes to be the event horizon of the huge attack campaign by the Russian APT group, Carbanak.
A Carbanak details that the APT and malware is increasingly used alongside new tactics to target executives at financial institutions in the Middle East, US and Europe.
The Carbanak malware and Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) campaign, which facilitated the heist of £6.5 million from banks around the world earlier this year, is back with its first new variant.
