The criminal group behind the Qadars banking trojan has launched v3 of their malware this year, which this month seems to be focused on targeting the clients of 18 banks in the UK, according to a recent report by IBM’s X-Force team. Qadars is one of the lesser known banking trojans, but just as dangerous as its more famous counterparts, such as Dridex, URSnif, Ramnit, Neverquest, Shifu, and others.
