Trusteer adds financial malware disinfection to Rapport

Trusteer today announced that it has added financial malware disinfection to its Rapport service.

In addition to preventing Trojans like Zeus, Silon, Bugat, DBJP and zero day malware from tampering with website communications and transactions, Rapport now removes malicious code that attempts to attack browser sessions.

This new capability is being provided at no additional cost to all Rapport customers and end users.

Trusteer will also submit any new (zero day) malware it discovers to all anti malware vendors in an effort improve notoriously low detection rates for crime ware.

Recent studies from Trusteer and other fraud detection vendors show that antivirus solutions detect only 10 percent of active financial malware.

By sharing financial malware samples with all anti malware vendors Trusteer is helping to improve banking security for all customers including those that are not yet using the Rapport service.

Trusteer’s unique technology discovers, captures, and validates zero-day financial malware weeks and even months before new attacks are addressed by anti-malware vendors.

Mick Paisley, Head of information security and business resilience for Santander commented, “The new financial malware disinfection tool that has just been added to the Rapport secure browsing service is fantastic news for our customers, Santander offer this complimentary service to all our retail banking customers and many of them have already taken advantage of this additional protection for their online banking.”

Zeus and other online fraud Trojans are increasingly being remotely reconfigured by criminals to deliver new, more targeted and more authentic looking attacks.

For example, Trusteer recently discovered campaigns that use Zeus to exploit the familiar Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode security programs and launch regionally-focused attacks against specific banks.

Rapport’s ability to block attacks from malware present on a machine and now to remove the malicious code provides the broadest protection for financial institutions and their customers.

“With the addition of its free malware removal capability Trusteer now provides the most comprehensive anti phishing and anti malware protection for online banking,” said Amit Klein, CTO of Trusteer and head of the company’s research organization.

“Rapport detects, alerts on, blocks, and removes financial malware at no cost for end-users, while it protects online communication with their financial institution. As an added benefit, Rapport can protect communication with an unlimited number of websites.”
