The TrendLabs Malware Blog reported that a malware variant created with the well-known ZeuS toolkit seems to be targeting members of the U.S. military serving overseas. Targets of this scam will receive an email regarding their Bank of America Military Bank Account. If the recipient clicks the link, they will be brought to a fake login page that is almost identical to the real login page of the bank.
