Korgo keylogs your every stroke



A new Windows worm, Korgo, is able to auto-infect unpatched systems with a keylogging trojan, steal online banking information, and secretly transmit data back to its creators, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Anti-virus firm F-Secure says there are a number of variants of the worm, all of which exploit one of the vulnerabilities which was patched by Microsoft in April.

F-Secure's Mikko Hypponen said the worm logs everything the user types to any web form, including credit card numbers, passwords, user logins for online banks etc.

He advised those who had been infected by Korgo to change their passwords and cancel their credit cards. "Especially the ones you've used during last week. This is not a joke," he said.
