New keylogging trojan races around the world


A new keylogging trojan is racing around the world affecting thousands of new machines a day, warns security vendor PC Tools.

PC Tools' research team discovered the trojan and on Wednesday classified it as high risk. Called the 007 keylogger, it is a new variant of the Keylog-sters trojan released last February. It captures screenshots of Web pages with login fields such as usernames and passwords, records the stolen data into a text file and uploads it to a private FTP server in a folder named after the infected users country.
