A new Trojan horse is circulating, masquerading as an anti-spam screen saver from Lycos. It installs a keylogger on victims' machines. The keylogger can be used to steal passwords and confidential information.

The subject line says, "Be the first to fight spam with Lycos screen." That refers to a Lycos screen saver, since withdrawn, that bombarded spammers with data. Lycos, an Internet portal, withdrew the screen saver after complaints that it was jamming the Internet with garbage.

Delete spam and update your anti-virus program. That will protect you.
