AlienVault identifies two Yara rules for KINS toolkit

AlienVault research engineer, Alberto Ortega has identified two Yara rules that will help malware analysts and incident responders to detect, classify and track the malware arsenal of the recently leaked KINS toolkit.

KINS is a professional-grade banking trojan, designed to infect as many computers as possible in order to steal credit cards, bank account credentials and related information from victims. Seen as a replacement to Citadel, it was identified in the wild not long ago. Now, this leak can lead to new variants and malware families.

After he studied the components, Alberto has written two yara rules to match the dropper and the zeus version used as bot. They are freely available to use and will help infosec practitioners identify and track KINS.
