#2063 Dridex’s cold war: enter AtomBombing
IBM X-Force discovered that Dridex, one of the most nefarious banking Trojans active in the financial cybercrime arena, recently underwent a major version upgrade that is already active in online banking attacks in Europe.

A few weeks ago, our cybercrime labs detected a new major version of the Dridex banking Trojan, Dridex v4. The updated code features a new and innovative injection method based on a technique dubbed AtomBombing, which was first disclosed in October 2016 by security firm enSilo.

Dridex is the only banking Trojan we have encountered to use AtomBombing. This change is especially significant when it involves Trojans believed to be operated by an organized cybercrime gang because it’s likely to result in other codes adopting the same method in the future.
