Police have issued a warning about spam that sends the unwary to Web sites hiding malicious software that can record their online-banking passwords

Police are warning Internet users about 'Trojan' emails containing links to malicious websites that can steal sensitive information such as PINs and password log-ins from vulnerable PCs.

The UK's National Hi-Tech Crime Unit (NHTCU) said the spam emails contain details of a fictitious order for Web hosting or computer goods and display the cost that will supposedly be charged to their credit card.

The email also contains a link to a website to view the order in more detail but if people click on the link, it takes them to a malicious website that allows hackers to steal data from their PC.
