    This time it is not the poor beleaguered David Beckham’s fault. Now, hackers have sent thousands of messages on chat rooms and news groups, claiming that users can see pictures of the England football captain in a "compromising" position with a Spanish hooker by clicking a link.

    When ‘curious’ users click on the link that they presume will show them the sleazy pictures, they will end up downloading a Trojan. Once the Trojan infects the computer then hackers can gain easy access the PC.

    The Trojan that is downloaded when the link to the images is clicked is called the ‘Hackarmy’ Trojan. This Trojan is a backdoor IRC type and first appeared in January 2004. After infecting a computer, it then logs on to a predefined IRC server and waits for backdoor commands from the hacker. Hackarmy authors had used similar tricks to lure curious users into downloading the Trojan. They tried the same trick by claiming that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Osama Bin Laden had been found dead.

    A Free eScan toolkit utiltiy available at www.mwti.net helps you find if your system is infected with this Trojan.
