Trojan horses accounted for a third of the top 50 of malicious code samples.

Phishing - the act of stealing passwords, credit card numbers and other confidential information by making people believe that a fake website is genuine - is also dangerously increasing. In July 2004 the company blocked about 9 million phishing attempts a week while this already increased to 33 million at the end of the year.
