    The Atlanta-based security services firm SecureWorks discovered, by way of an inquiry from one of its Windows customers, what appears to be a very sophisticated Trojan horse program. Under intense analysis, the program was discovered to be attempting to deliver users’ certificates and other identifying data to a variety of IP addresses found to be hosted in Russia.
