ZeuS is a well-known banking Trojan horse program, also known as crimeware. This trojan steals data from infected computers via web browsers and protected storage. Once infected, the computer sends the stolen data to a bot command and control (C&C) server, where the data is stored.
ZeuS is sold in the criminal underground as a kit for around $3000-4000, and is likely the one malware most utilized by criminals specializing in financial fraud. ZeuS has evolved over time and includes a full arsenal of information stealing capabilities:
Steals data submitted in HTTP forms
Steals account credentials stored in the Windows Protected Storage
Steals client-side X.509 public key infrastructure (PKI) certificates
Steals FTP and POP account credentials
