and this is my answer

Game over Zeus (GOZ) is a peer-to-peer game which alternate of the Zeus family of bank is stealing malware identified in September 2011. GOZ often spread and sending through phishing massages and spam. This game is mostly used by cybercriminals to gather banking information. These cybercriminals try to steal other users log in identifications from user’s computers. Also infected system can be used to participate other malicious activities for example sending spam or participating in distributed denial of service attacks. Previous changes of the Zeus malware used a centralized command and control. Centralized C2 servers are regularly tracked and blocked by the security community however, utilizes a P2P network of infected hosts to communicate and distribute data, and employs encryption to escape detection. These peers act as a enormous proxy network that is used to spread binary updates, distribute configuration files, and to send stolen data. Without a single point of failure, the flexibility of GOZ’s P2P infrastructure makes takedown efforts more difficult.

thank you
