The notorious Dyre banking malware has been updated to take on Windows 10 machines and hook its claws into the Edge browser.
Dyre, also known as Dyreza, appeared on the cybercrime scene in July 2014 and has quickly gained a reputation as a nasty piece of malware that aims to steal credentials.

It's been found to target Salesforce users and banking customers, and more recently was discovered to have been adapted to steal credentials from a range of supply-chain businesses, including fulfilment and warehousing, inventory-management software vendors and wholesale computer distributors.

Security firm Heimdal has reported that the malware -- sold as a cybercrime-for-hire service -- has now been updated to support the targeting of Windows 10 and its Edge browser.

Perfect reason to do banking on a live linux disk and go directly to the banking site. 

 

The OS is only as secure as the person using it. Don't click emails from Uncle Fred that only contains a link or attachment.
