Trusteer Attack Trace provides visibility into leading trojans and threats aimed at specific Web sites
NEW YORK, Dec. 3, 2008 - Trusteer, the customer protection company for online businesses, today announced the availability of a free malware search tool that provides financial institutions with visibility into web attacks targeting their websites. The Trusteer Attack Trace search engine, available at http://www.trusteer.com/FIsearch/open_search.php, allows IT professionals to submit their organization's web address and see a list of malware configuration files that are designed to commit fraud against their brand.

By typing their URL address into the Attack Trace search engine, users get a glimpse into the cross section of malware that is specifically aimed at their website and what the code is written to accomplish. The Trusteer Attack Trace search engine searches for leading Trojans and other attack codes including Torpig/Sinowal, WSNPOEM, and NetHell. A more comprehensive version of the Attack Trace engine is available at no cost by completing a short registration form at www.trusteer.com.

The Attack Trace search engine was developed and is constantly updated by Trusteer's research organization (http://www.trusteer.com/research), which is led by noted web security researcher Amit Klein. Klein is credited with discovering and reporting numerous DNS vulnerabilities.

"The amount and sophistication of malware targeting financial websites is growing at an exponential rate," said Amit Klein CTO of Trusteer and head of the company's research organization. "The Attack Trace tool gives security professionals a view into the type and number of crimeware files that are directly attacking their website and users. It provides a barometer of web threats and quantifiable evidence for making IT security investments."
