Samsung Web site hosts password stealing trojan

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 11:58 am

Samsung’s US Web site is hosting a Trojan horse that logs keystrokes, disables antivirus applications and steals online banking access codes, according to Internet security firm Websense.

Visitors to the Web site are not affected by the malware and Websense believes Samsung’s Web server has most likely been compromised in order to serve malware to users that receive spam messages or malicious IM messages.

Joel Camissar, Australian country manager for Websense, told ZDNet Australia that Samsung has been informed about the issue but has not yet removed the offending files.
