"Zeus, or Zbot, recently began circulating spam claiming to come from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), requesting users submit a “tax refund request form” by clicking on a link that is provided. Clicking takes victims to a website that attempts to perform a drive-by download, meaning users do not need to take any further action to be infected, Don Debolt, director of threat research at CA, told SCMagazineUS.com on Monday.

If clicked, the link loads a browser window that looks blank but, in the background, is attempting to download malicious code and install a variant of Zeus," – Content courtesy of Zeus spreading through drive-by download – SC Magazine US
