Detection & mitigation against the recent BackSwap Banking Trojan

Referring to above  BackSwap Banking Trojan ,  does McAfee AV & IPS detect/block it?
Think I saw a link (but misplaced it) that McAfee AV can't detect it yet.

Is there alternative ways of detecting/blocking it if AV can't?

What is the hash or IOC for this malware?

Note that this particular trojan only affects a few banks based out of Poland and hasn't yet spread beyond that. With that said, however, detecting or blocking attempts to use the javascript: pseudo protocol should act as an effective countermeasure for the more recent versions of this trojan. For the older versions, you can try disabling the copy/paste function in Windows, but this countermeasure would likely cause an unacceptable impact to productivity.

Look at VT result. the BackSwap banking Trojan has MD5:f8ce875dd49e7c20ccf1f27dd68f9970 and its size is 607.36 KB which is recognized by AV engines with the following tags:


For now is to use other AV scanner or some sort of IOC finder using the hash etc but this known threat will sooner be detected by others. Disable of JS and enable application whitelisting to mitigate though it may not be fool-proof and can ne not user friendly.
