    Hi SlyFox,

    Dancho Danchev's post Facebook password reset themed malware campaign in the wild | Zero Day | ZDNet.com discusses the link between this Facebook malware BREDOLAB and ZeuS "Their uses complement each other, which is why we very often see them together.ZeuS specializes in stealing information from infected systems. BREDOLAB, on the other hand, is a software that enables cybercriminal organizations to deliver any kind of software to its victims. Once a userís machine is infected by BREDOLAB, it will receive regular malware updates the same way it receives software updates from the userís security vendor."

    Enjoy the day,
    Findley
