100,000 Machines With Zeus Botnet Targeting UK Online Banking [bbc.co.uk]
A network of thousands of compromised computers that is being used to harvest online banking details has been uncovered in the UK.
The 100,000 Windows machines have been infected with a Trojan known as Zeus.
There are currently hundreds of networks of computers infected with Zeus.
