Zeus theft alert spam carries Zeus password stealer

The password-stealing Zeus trojan is the most widespread cause of banking theft worldwide.  Victims of these attacks often get their first notification of a problem as some sort of report from their Bank.  Now malware distributors are closing the loop by sending spam that mimics a bank notification, but carries a Trojan.Zeus payload.  Currently circulating messages refer to a wire transfer confirmation or attempt to assume the identity of the NW3C (National White Collar Crime Center.)  Don't click on links or open attachments in emails – call or visit your financial institution instead.
