If the trojan does manage to get onto my well secured computer and if it does some how manage to get into WINE, I can't see what damage it can do.... hee hee. Most likely the trojan will stop at my computer and think, "WTF? Linux? Damn......"

Call me cynical, but why do I feel like I just read an advertisement for MicroWorld's products?

Viruses/trojans that have keyloggers built-in.... not new.
Viruses/trojans that propogate via email.... not new.
Viruses/trojans that create havoc.... not new.
Viruses/trojans that create botnets.... not new.
Viruses/trojans that cause lots of spam.... not new.

Where's the news?

"Users with eScan installed on their systems and MailScan on their mail servers need not fear the ZBot Trojan, as eScan and MailScan are well-equipped to identify and remove the ZBot Trojan effectively."

As are the users who use quite a few of the other antivirus packages from other companies I'm sure.
