The Bagsu banker case - presentation

Posted by    on   Jan 29, 2021

Some time ago, researchers at CSIS Security Group discovered the infrastructure of a "quiet" banking trojan actor that had been targeting German users since at least 2014.

At VB2019 CSIS researcher Benoît Ancel gave a talk in which he provided a technical insight into the whole operation: infrastructure, multi-platform trojans, money laundering schemes, and a move towards malware-as-a-service markets.

At the time of the presentation, due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, its content was TLP:Amber, but now we have had the green light to share it publicly. The presentation represents a great use case for understanding the carding ecosystem.




Have you carried out research that furthers our understanding of the threat landscape? Have you discovered a technique that helps in the analysis of malware? The Call for Papers for VB2021 in Prague is open!

We're making plans to accommodate presentations that are given remotely as well as those that can be given in person, so don't hesitate to submit, regardless of whether or not you know at this stage if you'll be able to travel! Submit your abstract before 21 March for a chance to make it onto the programme of one of the most international threat intelligence conferences.
