Password Stealing Trojan Mass Mailed

Several million copies of a password-stealing Trojan horse were spammed to Internet users late last week, a security company said Monday, and workers returning to the office who open the attachment risk a computer kidnapping.

U.K.-based BlackSpider Technologies said that it had already intercepted more than 3.2 million messages with an attached Trojan, and claimed that it took 52 hours for the first anti-virus vendor to issue a signature that detected and deleted the malware.
