Shifu: ‘Masterful’ New Banking Trojan Is Attacking 14 Japanese Banks

A brand-new advanced banking Trojan discovered in the wild has been named “Shifu” by IBM Security X-Force, after the Japanese word for thief. The malware appears to have been active since as early as April 2015; it was unearthed by IBM Security antifraud platforms through continuous protection of customer endpoints all over the world.

Shifu currently targets 14 Japanese banks and select electronic banking platforms used across Europe; however, at this time, only Japan is seeing active attacks.

Due to the capabilities Shifu presents, it is considered a highly sophisticated banking Trojan. Our analysis reveals that some of this malware’s features and modules were borrowed from other banking Trojans’ leaked source codes, including Shiz, Gozi, Zeus and Dridex, making it a power-patchwork of sorts.
