Default Malware for everyone - Aldi Bot at a discount price

From http://h-online.com/-1346594

In a blog posting, anti-virus vendor G Data is reporting that a functional botnet builder, dubbed the Aldi Bot, is available on underground forums for just €10. The company says that the Aldi Bot Builder appears to be based on the ZeuS source code. The malware has nothing to do with the discount supermarket chain and it is not clear why its author chose to name the bot after Aldi – it is thought it may relate to the bot's discount pricing.

The Aldi Bot can read (saved) passwords from the Firefox web browser, Pidgin IM client and JDownloader download tool, and send them to a command and control server which is included in the €10 price tag.
