Worthy of notice:  The trojan in question is not a trojan, it is a
worm.  It resides on cracked web servers.  There is no indication
that the Gimpshop installer itself is infected.

LilyJade is a browser hijacker that can take control of all the
"major brands" of browser.  Apparently it only works on Microsoft
platforms, which may be why it is being called a "virus."

For a moment there I thought that the GIMP was getting so popular
that some crackers thought it was worth the effort to break into a
site hosting a minor variant of it, to plant a rigged version.
Alas, no such "luck."
