Brief Description 

    

Banbra.BZY is a password stealer type Trojan that searches for Internet Explorer windows. Then, it checks if the user accesses URLs containing certain text strings, which belong to online banking entities.

If so, it displays a false website that imitates the original one, where users are requested to log in. This way, Banbra.BZY obtains confidential user data, such as username and password.

Then, it sends the data it has gathered to a certain email address.

Banbra.BZY does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Banbra.BZY is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
