Spy Eye steals data and tries to kill rival...by stealing data and then removing the malicious program from infected computers. The feature, called 'Kill Zeus', apparently removes the Zeus software from the victim's PC, giving Spy Eye exclusive access to usernames and passwords.

...Trojans such as Zeus and Spy Eye steal online banking credentials. This information is then used to empty bank accounts by transferring funds to so-called money mules...
