Is it really Zeus vs. Anonymous?

Taylor Armerding | March 7, 2012
Were Anonymous supporters really duped into installing the Zeus botnet that steals their confidential information, including email login information, banking user names and passwords? Symantec says yes.

But Wallis says the back-and-forth between Symantec and Anonymous misses a much larger point, that "a new beast is loose on the Internet."

"The fact is that Symantec, intentionally or otherwise, has posted a "How To" for malware operators in terms of pirating practically anything and installing malware into any feed of this type, whether by Anonymous or your friendly local spam bit torrent company. This is not good news for anyone."
