    Zeus or Zbot trojan

      I haven't found anything on the McAfee site about the Zeus or Zbot trojan that peaked in mid November.  I read about it in the Costco newsletter and read a detailed document on the Norton site.  I got an email message on webmail that was reportedly by the IRS.  I checked the links and they seemed ok, but I don't think that I actually followed the links.  The Norton document says to run their scanner and it will find and remove the trojan.  I need to know whether McAfee will recognize and remove it.  This is a nasty trojan that captures security codes and passwords.  It has an install kit that makes it easy for people to set up and send out, so there can be many variations.
