Raver32 writes: "In an Internet attack dubbed "The Italian Job," several thousand Italian tourism websites have been infected by software that quietly gains control of computers visiting them and seeks out confidential financial data, a computer security firm said Monday. Trend Micro Inc. said it detected more than 4,500 travel sites in Italy that have been infected as part of a scheme through which data on computers that visit those sites is being stolen and sent to a server located in Chicago, said David Perry, a spokesman for the Japan-based company. This marks the most widespread attack ever in which malicious software has been spread by using infected Web sites, Perry said."
