Citadel is a piece of massively-distributed malware based upon Zeus. It is notable for targeting credentials stored in password managers such as Keepass, Password Safe and neXus Personal Security Client.
March 20, 2017, having been extradited from Norway to the US, a Russian computer science professional Mark Vartanyan pled guilty to computer fraud to help developing, distributing the Citadel malware. He was sentenced to 5 years in federal prison - the much less harsh sentence, than what was expected due to the degree of his involvement about Citadel.
