Project/Thesis Title : Behavioral Study of Malwares Impacting Financial Institutions and Clients
Abstract : The purpose of this research project is to study the behavior of malware impacting users of financial institutions (FI). An experimental analysis of the malware targeting individuals’ bank accounts by sniffing their credentials via exploit kits and phishing attacks was conducted. Post experiment analysis shows the various actions done by the malware on the infected systems. In addition, we presented various protection mechanisms which help in overcoming the damage caused by financial malware.
