An identity-stealing e-mail Trojan horse that disguises itself as the Lycos Europe antispam screensaver is being distributed around the Internet, an antivirus company has warned.Published: December 7, 2004, 11:04 AM PST By Dan Ilett, Special to CNET News.com F-Secure said Tuesday that the key-logging Trojan steals usernames, passwords, credit card details and e-mail addresses, and travels as an e-mail attachment. Mikko Hypponen, F-Secure's director of antivirus research, said the recent media attention given to the Lycos Europe "Make love not spam" campaign could be an incentive to open the file.
