I just read an article about the Mebroot virus, which buries itself in the
Master Boot Record and cannot be detected by most virus protection software.
This nasty bug gives hackers access to info from financial sites that are
visited.  A program from GMER supposedly can detect and remove this threat,
and a link was included to download it.

I don't know which is scarier - the virus or the download.  Does anyone have
any knowledge of this?
