And this from eWeek:


Sunbelt Adds Detection for ID Theft Keylogger

Anti-spyware vendor Sunbelt plans to release a free tool to zap a sophisticated keystroke logger being used by an organized ring of identity thieves.

The spyware keylogger, named Srv.SSA-KeyLogger, was being used to hijack confidential data from millions of infected computers and send the information back to a remote server controlled by an identity theft ring.


The keystroke logger has been programmed to shut down the firewall that ships with Windows XP and steal data from the IE "Protected Storage Area."

The program also hijacks data from the Windows clipboard and uploads all the stolen data to a remote Web server controlled by an unknown ring of identity thieves.
