This story says "Cyber criminals have created a highly sophisticated Trojan
virus that steals online banking log-in details from infected computers.."
Isn't that mixing things up, I always understood Trojan horses and viruses to
be different things.
At least they say that it's a Windows malware, which is not a very common
thing to do; most news stories use "computer virus" as though all computers
were the same.
