Re: The powerful Citadel
This may just be a case of "Why reinvent the wheel".  The attackers were able to infect the targets systems with Citadel so why go through the trouble of developing custom code when off the shelf will work.

Re: The powerful Citadel
Probably the attackers already used Citadel in the past or probably the rent the infrastructure from Third party.

Anyway Citadel in a malware directly derived by Zeus that is still evolving in time, but that suffered major operations from law enforcement in the last months.

The powerful Citadel
Citadel malware is a very powerful bat and flexible, it could represent an excellent choice option for APTs. Citadel features allow any attacker to quickly operate a cyber espionage campaign, consider also that in the underground many groups offer ready-to-use Citadel botnet for rent.

We will more and more of Citadel targeting many other industries.
