    The new Trojan horse program -- dubbed "Phel," an anagram of "Help"
    -- infects visitors to a malicious Web site through Internet
    Explorer's Help controls, Symantec warns. The Trojan horse exploits a
    vulnerability in the way Internet Explorer and Windows XP Service
    Pack 2 handle help files called from Web pages.

    Thanks for the info. I use both FireFox and Thunderbird and hope
    they keep my computer a little safer.
