    Trojan phishing suspect hauled in

    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/04...uspect_cuffed/

    An Estonian man suspected of plundering millions from hundreds of online bank accounts accounts across Europe was arrested last week. AP reports that the unnamed 24 year-old allegedly used a sophisticated Trojan in order to monitor the keystrokes on victims' PCs and extract confidential banking passwords that allowed him to plunder online accounts.
    A good trend as of late that there seem to be more arrests in phishing scams. Hopefully convictions and stiff penalties are to follow.

    Errrmmm?!?!? Ethics?!?!? I see no real reason why an admin would install a keylogger to "monitor" his/her users. It is a blatant disregard of that user's privacy.
    Disguising a keylogger as a game is called a trojan horse....
