Clampi is a man-in-the-browser trojan that steals financial information from companies that are sent to hackers to use for fraud scams. The virus has been around since 2007 and only affects Microsoft computers.[1] The virus can steal data from more than 4,500 websites. Clampi goes after utilities, market research firms, online casinos, and career sites.[2] Joe Stewart, of SecureWorks, said that it is one of the largest and most professional thieving operations on the Internet.[3]
