October proved to be a quiet month in terms of information security events. However, over the course of the second autumn month, a number of popular Internet resources still fell victim to attacks of cybercriminals—the hacked websites were used to distribute a dangerous program disguised as an anti-virus utility created by a well-known developer. Moreover, October witnessed emergence of new Trojans for Android and iOS—in particular, Android.BankBot.80.origin that was spread as an official online banking application of a Russian financial organization and IPhoneOS.Trojan.YiSpecter.2 designed to display advertisements and stealthily download other programs to compromised devices.
