A new Trojan dubbed 'OddJob' is stealing people's money by taking over their online banking sessions after they think they've logged off.

The Trojan, which targets Windows-based computers, is being used by criminals in eastern Europe to steal money from accounts in the United States, Poland and Denmark, Amit Klein, chief technology officer of Trusteer, writes in a blog post on Tuesday.

Klein said in an email that he could not identify the banks being targeted or provide an estimate on the number of victims. "It is early days for this malware," he said. "It appears to be a work in progress, so we expect the code to become more sophisticated over time."
