PC Advisor reports that some users of HSBC's personal Internet banking site were given a false warning by Kaspersky Internet Security software that they had been infected by the HTLM-Agent-CE Trojan.
HSBC told ZDNet UK
"HSBC has not been hit by a Trojan, but the latest update to Kaspersky AV software is generating messages on some secure websites (including ours) when none is warranted."
According to The Register, a Kaspersky spokesman says the situation was "quickly rectified." The company apologized for any inconvenience.
In related news, the company has updated its Kaspersky Internet Security and Kaspersky Anti-Virus programs for 2010, reports CNET News.
