    Rombertik is designed to steal any plain text entered into a browser window
    A new type of malware resorts to crippling a computer if it is detected during security checks, a particularly catastrophic blow to its victims.

    The malware, nicknamed Rombertik by Cisco Systems, is designed to intercept any plain text entered into a browser window. It is being spread through spam and phishing messages, according to Cisco's Talos Group blog on Monday.
