By Richard Adhikari:


The RSA FraudAction Research Laboratory is putting the pressure on the notorious Sinowal Trojan (define).


According to the laboratory, this Trojan, which it says is also known as Torpig and Mebroot, has stolen and compromised login credentials from about 500,000 online bank accounts and credit and debit cards over the course of nearly three years. It has also stolen and compromised other information such as e-mail and FTP accounts from many Websites, RSA claimed.
