"Citadel, whose capabilities include keylogging, emerged after the source code for the infamous ZeuS cybercrime toolkit was released in 2011.

The source code for malware has *always* been available online, if you know where to look. That you seek to link such malware to `open source code' merely demonstrates that you've been drinking too long from the fountain of open source FUD ®
