Quote:
A new, stealthier version of a previously known Russian Trojan horse program called Gozi has been circulating on the Internet since April 17 and has already stolen personal data from more than 2,000 home users worldwide.

The compromised information includes bank and credit card account numbers (including card verification value codes), Social Security numbers and online payment account numbers as well as usernames and passwords. As with its predecessor, the new version of Gozi is programmed to steal information from encrypted Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) streams and send the stolen information to a server in Russia...This version of Gozi also has a new keystroke-logging capability for stealing data, in addition to its ability to steal data from SSL streams...
