Virgin alerts infected customers

About 1,500 customers of internet service provider Virgin Media have been warned that their PCs are infected with a malicious virus.

The targeted computers had fallen victim to the SpyEye trojan that steals log-ins for online bank accounts.

Virgin was alerted to the infections by the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA).

Letters were sent to those affected, giving them advice on how to clean up their machines.

Virgin is understood to be the first UK ISP to give specific warnings about viruses based on SOCA’s advice.

However, the UK Internet Service Providers Association said that it was not unusual for companies to contact customers as a result of information from other law enforcement bodies.

It is impossible, at this stage, to know how many other ISPs’ customers are affected by SpyEye.
