    Looking at the 1st link below, Montp represents one of the most advanced keylogging trojans I've seen (based on the # of banks it can track).

    It is designed specifically to intercept bank transaction information and transmitting it to a special website. While I'm hopeful authorities can shut this down, please encourage users to be careful with email and the web site links.

    Montp spying trojan was first discovered in April 2004. The last, Montp.F variant was found on 6-7th of June 2004. The Montp trojan has powerful spying features: it collects information from users of numerous on-line banks and sends collected data to a hacker by uploading specially created files to an ftp server. The trojan can also download and run additional files from ftp and http servers. Additionally the trojan utilizes stealth techniques.
