Fake White House E-Mails Spread Trojan Virus Across U.K. Government Networks

Posted Feb 8, 2011

The U.K. foreign secretary William Hague announced that the Zeus trojan virus has been spreading on the government network because there were links contained within fake e-mails from The White House. “A large number of emails bypassed some of our filters,” said Hague. The government was able to get rid of the virus, but it is uncertain whether any data was stolen. [Guardian UK]
