Zeus trojan virus

A new variant of the Zeus trojan virus is now being described by experts as the most sophisticated and dangerous trojan virus ever created.

Thousands of British online banking customers fell victim to the Zeus v3 trojan virus wherein, between July 5 and August 4, 675,000 have already been stolen. The Zeus v3 collects data such as passwords and even transfers money out of accounts automatically, but only after checking if there is at least 800 available.

It's been on all news channels today about the virus.
Wish people like that would be more constructive instead of destructive.

Thanks for posting this Tews, first I've heard of it. And my Mom wonders why I'm so concerned about her doing her banking online.
Especially since at her age she's just a common user emails, shopping ect. and gets annoyed with me at times when I keep a constant vigil on her virus protection, firewall and run Malwarbytes. Not to mention I still can't get her to stop sending me these chain emails. Oh well at least I've made her understand to not open any attachments.Fabe
