PSW is a Trojan designed to obtain confidential information from computers. It is programmed to obtain data belonging to the user of the affected computer, such as passwords, user names, etc.
It is very easy to become affected by PSW, as it reaches computers through many different means: e-mail messages with infected attachments, computer networks, CD-ROMs, Internet downloads, FTP, etc.
PSW is difficult to identify, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate that it has reached a computer.
