Salesforce sent out a warning to its account administrators last week about its customers being targeted by the Dyreza malware.
In the update, it said a security partner identified that the Dyre malware (also known as Dyreza), which typically targets customers of large, well-known financial institutions, may now also target some Salesforce users.
The alert said: “We currently have no evidence that any of our customers have been impacted by this, and we are continuing our investigation. If we determine that a customer has been impacted by this malware, we will reach out to them with next steps and further guidance.”
Dyreza is a whole new banking trojan family, which was first spottedearlier this year targeting customers of US and UK banks.
Salesforce has instructed account administrators to check with their IT security team it the AV solution they use is capable of detecting the Dyre malware, and to contact them if they believe they have already been infected.
