    The old threat

    New variants are out. You can catch the new variants of this botnet by viewing a page. It has been on Hotmail and on a CNN page to name a few 'secure sites'. It 'adds on' to your browser then slowly takes over you computer by various methods depending on the strain. A good firewall allowing no incoming appears to prevent an infection otherwise you are 'road kill'. Not only does it steal all your PI it locates Filzilla and Dreamweaver files that store FTP connect info and sends that info back as well. That is how all these sites are getting infected.
