Brian Krebs over at the Washington Post has a series of stories up (dubbed Web Fraud 2.0) at the SecurityFix Blog on some of the developments of crimeware tools.  However, these tools operate on the opposite site of the fraud equation.  Namely, instead of malware that infects machines, its more the underground economy on what to do with that information and the facilitation of that activity.  It's a neat look at what "the other guys" are doing and how the electronic fraud market is an evolving and thriving one.
