McAfee and F-Secure have published reports of a new password stealer being spammed around the world. This one doesn't spread further, so it's not a virus. Once the user opens the attachment, a password stealer and a backdoor is installed to the system.

FORMAT OF SPAMMED EMAIL TO AVOID / BLOCK:

Subject of message: Important news about our soldiers in IRAQ!!!

Message body: Seven officers was lost today, follow the link to get the full story.

(Url link pointing to an innocent page showing stats on Iraqi soldiers killed).

Attachment: IMPORTANT INFORMATION.ZIP (17,520 bytes)

Infection: When run, the trojan drops both Backdoor and a Password Stealing components on to the victims computer.
