A large number of victims in UK-based banks, government agencies, and other corporate organizations have been warned that they were being targeted with the Dridex Trojan.

It has been revealed that UK government agencies and banks currently reside on a 'hitlist' of 385 million email addresses, which are being utilized by cyber criminals as a way of spreading the Dridex banking Trojan. 

Having been discovered in March, the target list and news of the attack has only recently been released. Since finding the list there have been attempts to find and shut down the server involved in the crime.

It was identified that a high number of email addresses were recently found within Government agencies, and these particular servers have now been shut down. 

According to a recent report by the Telegraph, the huge database revealed that major clients had fallen victim to hackers, which has prompted organizations to better manage and protect their data through better Cyber Security Controls. 

This attack was noted as global, but the campaign targeted the UK in particular.
