Hard on the heels of reports of the Sinowal Trojan – aka Torpig and Mebroot – stealing hundreds of thousands of Internet users’ online bank account and payment card details, provider of secure web gateway solutions Finjan has announced it is offering qualified organisations a free malware detection audit to halt Crimeware Trojan’s and other malware attacks on enterprises.
“Recent reports that the Sinowal Trojan has re-surfaced with a vengeance is bad news, especially since the malware has been around since the start of 2006. The fact that it is still around more than two and a half years later means that it is still hoovering up IDs and passwords,” said Tim Warner, UK and France Country Manager for Finjan. “Because of the severity of this latest attack, we are taking the opportunity of offering a free trial of our live traffic analysis technology to qualified organisations, which does not require any changes to their security infrastructure and network topology to install and operate.”
Warner went on to say that the Finjan’s auditing tool, RUSafe, gives enterprises a clear snapshot of the true nature of their Web traffic over a pre-defined timeframe, without disrupting in-line live traffic and being completely invisible to its users.
Finjan’s free trial offer comes after security vendor RSA has estimated the Sinowal Trojan has taken the details of 270,000 online bank accounts and 240,000 payment cards from financial institutions in a number of countries, including the US, UK, Australia and Poland.
