Gangster's ATM: New 'Trojan horse' opens your bank account to crooks

Call it an ATM for cyber-crooks -- and the cash could come out of your account.

Web security sleuths have found a new type of "Trojan horse" that steals your bank log-in name and password, then proceeds to drain money from your account -- while you're logged in.

The new Trojan, called URLZone, features a number of innovations not widely seen in Internet crime. For example, the Trojan can estimate precisely how much money to steal based on how much dough you have in your account, and can even siphon money in small increments to evade detection.
