Spanish Trojan Targets Online Bankers

Antivirus firm Panda Software warned Tuesday of a new trojan that has begun to spread worldwide through MSN Messenger and attempts to obtain passwords of Spanish speaking online banking users. Called Nabload.U, the trojan actually downloads another, Banker.bsx, which is currently the most detected piece of malware by Panda's ActiveScan service.

Nabload is different, however, in how it obtains the information. No keylogger is used, which means banks that have attempted to thwart trojans by using virtual keyboards are not protected from this attack, Panda says. BetaNews | Spanish Trojan Targets Online Bankers
