Wired News: Israelis Nab Computer Spies: "According to police, a computer programmer developed software known as a Trojan horse on behalf of three of the country's largest private investigation firms. The private investigators then sneaked the program into the computers of their clients' major competitors through seemingly benign e-mail attachments.

The program gave the private investigators complete access -- over the internet -- to their victims' computers, police said.

Police accused a car company that imports Volvos of spying on another company that imports Volkswagens. Two cell phone companies, Cellcom and Pele-phone, were accused of spying on a third company, police said. Another victim was the main TV cable company, called HOT.

Those arrested included a top executive from the YES satellite television company, security officials who worked for Pele-Phone and Cellcom, and several private investigators. Many of the 18 people arrested in recent days in the case denied breaking the law. The case was under a gag order until Sunday."
