Once called the “God of DIY botnets,” Zeus enables cybercriminals to steal banking information and other sensitive data. It includes a control panel and a builder to create executables and infect victim computers. Its malware typically spreads through email or drive-by infections. Earlier this year, a new version of Zeus emerged that uses peer-to-peer protocol to maintain contact with its command-and-control sites. There are an estimated 944 Zeus C&C servers in October 2012.
