My bank called me today to let me know that they detected a dyre virus on a device I was using to log into their online banking. According to some brief research, a dyre virus gains access to systems through spam emails, etc and is undetectable by basic antivirus software because it deletes it’s history. Once it’s in the system it’s basically a keystroke logger and picks up usernames and passwords. After collecting this information sends it to a server owned by the criminals.
Is my understanding of that correct?
I have an iPhone and a MacBook Pro I use to access online banking and I’m not sure which one has the virus. How can I figure out which one has the virus and remove it?
And what are my antivirus options that will protect against attacks like this in the future?
