Websense: Samsung Telecom Hosts Trojans
San Diego-based Websense reported last week that Samsung Telecom's website was hosting malicious code, which attempts to disable anti-virus programs, modify registry keys, and log keystrokes when connecting to bank websites. The firm said it issued the release because of reports of the malicious software. The disclosure highlights the increasing risk by companies of hackers placing malicious code on corporate web sites, in order to snap information such as passwords, credit card numbers, or banking information. Samsung Telecom's website has been unavailable as of this weekend.
