Trojan for Firefox

By | December 5, 2008 | 2 Comments

BitDefender has identified this new bit of holiday cheer as Trojan.PWS.ChromeInject.A.”

The trojan installs itself into Firefox’s add-on directory, registers itself as Greasemonkey, and begins searching your hard drive for passwords, login details, your World of WarCraft account information, and your library card number.

Once installed, the trojan is capable of identifying over 100 web sites. When an infected user visits a site the trojan recognizes, the parasite comes to life and records the login/password details being transmitted. Presumably it then goes back to sleep, quietly keeping an eye on further system activity.
