ESET Canada malware research lab has recently analyzed a very active banking Trojan dubbed Qadars which is targeting users especially in the Netherlands (75% of detected infections; among other targets are France, Italy, Canada, India and Australia). Qadars uses a wide variety of webinjects, some with Android mobile components that are capable of bypassing two-factor authentication systems of online banking to gain access to user’s bank account.
