UK businesses faced a barrage of 115,000 emails containing a new Trojan on Friday, 22 January before anti-virus vendors scrambled out an update, according to email filtering firm BlackSpider Technologies.

The Trojan downloader malware - called Agent-ADO - comes in the payload to a message that poses as a warning about a user’s credit card limits been exceeded.

Infected emails commonly have the subject line “ERROR:YOUR CREDIT CARD OVERDRAFT EXCEED!” and an infected attachment, a packed executable file called FILE1185 which is 5592 bytes long.
