Security researchers have come across a new rootkit that is designed specifically to infect 64-bit Windows systems and steal users' online banking credentials. It's believed to be the first piece of malware of its kind that is capable of compromising x64 systems.

The new rootkit is being used by attackers in Brazil as part of drive-by download attacks and is then used to steal banking credentials after the infection. The malware has the ability to change some of the boot configurations of infected machines and then aims to redirect users to phishing sites. The new rootkit can infect machines running either 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Windows.

Interesting rootkit, yet its attacked from older versions of Java, latest version is a must. Also if a user have no Java probably it will not be a successful.

most of banking sites now have a virtual keyboard system to login, so unless the phisher design a very good reproduction, you have few risks for your account to be compromised.

It is amazing of how simple and straightforward it is and I am sure it is pretty efficient at stealing data also.

But still a 64-bit Rootkit is worrying. But considering how many types of these there out in the wild, it isn't that dangerous.
