In this article “The combination of the Citadel banking Trojan and Reveton ransomware that Trusteer warned about at the beginning of May is apparently still targeting users.

So much so, that the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) has issued an alert explaining the details of the threat.

The victims are lured to a compromised website where they unknowingly get infected with the Citadel Trojan. The Trojan then proceeds to contact a C&C server and download the Reveton ransomware from it.”
