IcedID: Original New Banking Trojan Emerges

Another new banking Trojan, IcedID, has been identified that does not seem to have borrowed code from similar threats. This Trojan, which was first identified in September of this year, is currently targeting banks and other financial organizations in the US, Canada, and the UK in an attempt to capture banking credentials, payment card info, and other sensitive information. The malware also uses the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to move and compromise other endpoints on the network. Application whitelisting and sophisticated endpoint protection can be utilized to thwart these types of malware.
