Dyre Wolf Campaign

04/02/2015
IBM researchers have reported a campaign related to the Dyre trojan, and they have dubbed it Dyre Wolf. Through this campaign, criminal organizations would have managed to steal between $500,000 and $1,500,000 to several companies, through fraudulent wire transfers.

For this purpose, along with the Dyre trojan, cybercriminals have employed spear phishing and other social engineering techniques, and even DDoS attacks, in order to distract the banks while the theft was taking place.
