PandaLabs reported the presence of a powerful new bot called Ainslot.L. This malware is designed to log user activities, download additional malware and take control of users’ systems. Additionally, it acts as a banker Trojan, stealing log-in information related to online banking and financial transactions. Ainslot.L also performs scans on the computer to seek and remove other bots, becoming the only bot on one’s system. … Ainslot.L spreads via a fake email purporting to come from a UK clothing company called CULT.
