VB2017 video: Client Maximus raises the bar

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Aug 27, 2018

Brazil has long been known as a hotbed of cybercrime, but what makes the country especially unique is that a lot of this cybercrime is inwards-focused. Thus there are many malware strains written explicitly to target the country.

One of them is Client Maximus, a banking trojan discovered in 2017 by researchers from IBM Trusteer and for sale in the cybercriminal underground. One of these researchers, Omer Agmon, gave a last-minute presentation about the malware at VB2017 in Madrid.

In the presentation, he gave a brief summary of the threat landscape in Latin America, followed by a detailed analysis of Client Maximus and its various evasion and injection techniques.

Today, we have added the video of Omer's presentation to our YouTube channel.

Do you have some hot security research that you'd like to share with some excellent security researchers? The call for last-minute papers for VB2018 remains open until the end of this week (2 September)!
