    "A few months ago, at least prior to February 7th, Sality operators pushed a new malware onto their P2P network of infected bots. The malware in question hooks into Internet Explorer using its standard COM interface, and gathers credentials submitted via web forms. February’s variant treated Facebook, Blogger, and Myspace logon information differently: on top of stealing and sending the username/password to a Command and Control (C&C) server, the information was also dumped to an encrypted file, onto the user’s compromised computer. At that time, the plausible guess was that these credentials would be used by upcoming malware – the Sality programmers are very imaginative." :
