Based on Zeus’ original code, Citadel features new capabilities and has been called “Zeus on steroids.” But what makes Citadel highly unusual is how it’s been sold and marketed to criminals. Earlier this year, its developers created a social network to serve as technical support for Citadel, helping cybercriminals report any bugs, suggest new features and connect with other customers. In April 2012, RSA reported a 20% increase of Citadel in analyzed Trojan attacks.
