"The Zeus Trojan, which is also known as Zbot, steals data from a compromised
machine by logging keystrokes. People who click on an infected email or compromised
website could end up by exposing their online banking credentials. In addition, the
latest versions of the Trojan use a man-in-the-browser technique which intercepts
data before it can be encrypted."
"In July, security company Trusteer warned that botnets based on the Trojan were
targeting British online banking customers and said that the detection rates for the
malware by antivirus software were low, between zero and 20 percent."
"More than 280,000 UK systems running Windows were infected with the dropper,
and about 12 percent of these were then infected by the Trojan. The exploit kit also
hit non-Microsoft systems, affecting more than 3,800 Macs, 300 PlayStations and
three Wii consoles."
what program/s can prevent the Zeus Trojan/botnets/droppers and others installing
on one's computer ?
