Symantec researchers are warning of a new banking Trojan that's infecting users in the UK and the Netherlands.

"Neloweg operates much like its more famous cybercrime toolkit predecessor ZeuS, but with a couple of subtle twists," writes The Register's John Leyden. "'Like Zeus, Neloweg can detect which site it is on and add custom JavaScript. But while Zeus uses an included configuration file, Neloweg stores this on a malicious webserver,' Symantec analyst Fred Gutierrez explains."

"The malware is designed to snatch online login credentials, primarily (but not exclusively) those for online banking sites," Leyden writes.
