    Windows 7 infected with a Trojan

    A pre-release version of Windows 7 has been infected with malware and is currently being distributed on peer-to-peer networks. The tainted version of the new operating system includes malware that downloads further files from the internet. Trend Micro has named the threat TROJ_AGENT.NICE.

    It is surprising that anyone would want to download the Windows 7 Release Candidate from a torrent site, when a legitimate version is available for free direct from Microsoft.

    Last month criminals attacked Mac PCs using a similar tactic. They added malware to pirated versions of Apple's iWork '09 suite and Adobe's Photoshop CS4 software.
