The full source code of the powerful Carbanak banking malware has been discovered in the wild by FireEye researchers.

The Hacker News reports:

Carbanak—sometimes referred as FIN7, Anunak or Cobalt—is one of the most full-featured, dangerous malware that belongs to an APT-style cybercriminal group involved in several attacks against banks, financial institutions, hospitals, and restaurants.

In July last year, there was a rumor that the source code of Carbanak was leaked to the public, but researchers at Kaspersky Lab later confirmed that the leaked code was not the Carbanak Trojan.

Now cybersecurity researchers from FireEye revealed that they found Carbanak's source code, builders, and some previously unseen plugins in two RAR archives that were uploaded on the VirusTotal malware scanning engine two years ago from a Russian IP address.
