Re: Spammers use Trojans

Hi, Sean.

] I don't know what proof MessageLabs has, but they report that spammers
] are breaking into home PCs of unsuspecting users to send junk mail.

What proof?  Old proof.  :)  There are numerous bots, including the
now venerable SDbot, that have this capability.  This doesn't count
the plethora of other malware that can also forward spam.

Thanks,
Rob.
