For a couple of weeks in June the threat landscape was changed. Several high profile threats fell off the landscape, causing a shake-up that hadn’t been seen before. For a period of three weeks the internet was safer, if only for a short time. Still to date the Angler exploit kit has not returned and the threat landscape appears to be forever changed. This post will discuss a series of connections tying back to a banking trojan called lurk and a registrant account with ties that were far reaching across the crimeware landscape.
