Neverquest: a global malware campaign takes root

April 14, 2015

Last week, the ASERT team published an in-depth analysis of a global malware campaign. Neverquest is a sophisticated global threat targeting the worlds financial institutions by going after their customers - you and me. Neverquest can detect consumer connections to hundreds of financial institutions in over 25 countries. When an infected customer connects to their bank or other recognized site, Neverquest inserts itself into the process allowing it to modify web pages and steal credentials that can be used to perform fraudulent transactions. And it's not just banks. Neverquest is designed to capture data based on key words like "Account Balance" or posts to other sites like your favorite shopping, email or social media platforms. Neverquest is sophisticated malware that is easily extensible, supports different campaigns,  designed to avoid detection, and shows no signs of slowing down.
