The report said that: "Even though QAKBOT does not have the same level of notoriety as fellow banking Trojans ZeuS and SpyEye, it still manages to inflict considerable damage to the companies it affects".
"Like ZeuS, however, QAKBOT also recently underwent a "face-lift" with the release of a third-generation variant into the wild. This variant was notable in that it had enhanced propagation methods," the report noted.
