There has been a fairly well documented recent batch of Federal Reserve spam/phish being sent out. As documented here: http://garwarner.blogspot.com/2011/03/federal-reserve-spam.html

I never found an active domain while it was going on (GoDaddy did a nice job of cleaning the malicious domains), but from what I understand it was dropping some banking trojans. Does anyone happen to know which trojan specifically it was dropping? Or does anyone happen to have a copy of the malware, unfortunately I find myself needing to dig into this specific incident.

Thanks,
Helly

Yeah, since we realized we could add additional user agents besides Yahoo and Google, it's pretty amazing how many of our guests are actually bots. I didn't realize Alexa = Internet Wayback Machine, either.

these attacks continue unbated. the most recent occurred on 2011-04-22 and spoofed NACHA.

the attacks all follow the same patterns and all drop Zeus 2.1.
