4/22: CashGrab-A Hits Bank Customers
April 22, 2005
The CashGrab-A Trojan is aimed at people using online banking sites.

The Trojan, which affects the Windows operating system, allows remote users to access the infected computer, deletes files, steals information, drops in more malware, downloads code from the Internet and lowers system security.

According to analysts at anti-virus company Sophos, Inc., the malware will spy on a user's browsing habits for banking URLs. The Trojan will then attempt to steal login information.

It also will connect to a Web site to download files and information.

Technical details can be found at Sophos page.
