Two million password stealers fingered

It’s funny, isn’t ?

Microsoft’s Malicious Software Removal Tool – a program that removes malware from Windows machines – detected password-stealing software from more than 2 million PCs in the first week after it was updated.

One password stealer, called Taterf, alone was detected on 700,000 computers in the first day after the update. That’s twice as many infections as were spotted during the entire month after Microsoft began detecting the notorious Storm Worm malware last September.

Keep your eyes wide OPEN … and your antivirus updated!
