Win32.Grams - E-Gold Account Siphoner

I've written up an analysis of the Win32.Grams trojan. It differs from 
previous E-Gold phishing trojans in that it doesn't steal credentials; it 
uses the victim's own browser to siphon all the E-Gold (well, almost all, it 
leaves them .004 grams) directly from their account to another E-Gold 
account, using OLE automation. This would completely bypass all the new 
authentication methods financial institutions are using to thwart keystroke 
loggers/password stealers, because the trojan simply lets the user do the 
authentication, then takes over from there.

Full analysis is here:
