... An insidious new Internet attack that hijacks a victim's Internet connection and stealthily installs a barrage of adware and spyware is targeting businesses and organizations across the United States.

The two-pronged attack, which has been ongoing since early March, has afflicted an estimated 20,000 computers, according to Ken Dunham, director of malicious code at IDefense, a Virginia-based Internet security company.

The scheme is meant to take advantage of sloppy or hurried typists, given that on most keyboards the letter "k" key sits next to the "l" needed to type "Google."
