Qhost.HU is a Trojan that steals confidential information about certain banking entities, redirecting users that visit them to a malicious website that imitates the original one, so that the users enter their banking data.
Qhost.HU reaches the computer in a file with the icon of Windows Media Player, passing itself off as a video of a journalist who recorded a video before his death. However, it does not spread automatically by its own means.
