Yet another virus . . .

Forbes is reporting that another virus may be on the loose.

The report says:

"The infection makes subtle changes to the Web site so visitors get a piece of code that's designed to retrieve from a Russian Web site software that records a person's keystrokes and can send data back, experts say. Such software 'Trojan horses' are routinely used to fish for credit card numbers, bank accounts, passwords and the like."

According to Microsoft's security program manager, the fixes are not yet complete. People are encouraged to raise the security settings of their IE to the highest level and to turn off the JavaScript feature of their browsers.

Mozilla and Opera are apparently immune to the virus . . .

Microsoft is maintaining a security bulletin on the virus, which it is calling Download.Ject ranking it as "severe" ! ! !
