Title: Corkow - the lesser-known Bitcoin-curious cousin of the Russian
banking Trojan family
Description: Researchers at ESET say that they see several hundred
infections of the Win32/Corkow banking Trojan every single day, but it
has never seen the same attention from the security industry and media
as its more infamous cousins such as Carberp. That’s all about to
change, however, as ESET will be releasing a detailed technical
examination of the Corkow Trojan next week, describing some of its more
unusual features.
