Internet threat to your Money and Credit

As if we don't have enough to worry about already, internet security providers say they have discovered a new and improved version of an internet virus called Gozi . From what has been written about this so far, it is nasty.

This virus has stolen personal financial data from more than 2000 personal computers. Compromised information includes credit union, bank, credit card and social security numbers.

This new strain of Gozi, discovered by SecureWorks, is programmed to steal information from encrypted Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) streams and send it to a server in Russia.
