Since its leak in 2011, the Zeus botnet has been the basis of many follow up botnets. Now Flokibot joins the ranks.
Flokibot is similar to many botnets, and spreads in largely the same ways. However, this new variant has some new memory injection techniques that can help it evade some security software. It also seems to target point-of-sale (POS) software, with improved memory scraping capabilities. Watch the video to learn more about Flokibot, and how to avoid it.
