Hackers stole data from the monster

This time Hackers have stolen the personal details, of users of the US jobs website, monster.com. More than a million entries, were stolen. These entries include, the names, postal addresses and telephone numbers.

This is a phishing scam, in which the the users are asked, to submit their personal information, in response to an email, posing as a genuine request.
The Hackers used a special virus called Trojan Horse, for hacking into this website.The virus was programmed to send personalized emails to the users, advertising a job oppurtunity and asking them to submit their bank details.
