Google Pages Host Trojan Horse Scam

A WebmasterWorld thread discusses the news that Google Pages was used to host a trojan horse that can infect computers. The trojan horse was "designed to steal bank details relating to certain financial institutions." It did not do too much damage, from what I hear. Also, this is not a big deal - dozens of similar services (Yahoo!'s Geocities, etc.) have the same issues, I believe.
