Malicious Trojan poses as McAfee alert
It appears now that McAfee's name is now being used to spread a new trojan via email.  The email arrives presumably from McAfee with an attachment that actually spreads the trojan.  This mass mailing is unusual because it attempts to spoof the email address mcafee @ europe . com.  This trojan has been given the name Lafool.v by Kaspersky labs and is a password stealing program.
