This one seems very new, within the last few days.  What is the
pathology of this virus and manual removal?

Quoted text here. Click to load it

the name indicates that it's a password stealing trojan (not a virus)...
you probably got it by either clicking on an attachment or from a
drive-by-download on some compromised site...

as for removal, generally the program that detected it should be able to
remove it for you... other options include contacting the vendor of the
product that detected it for assistance removing it, trying different
products to see if they are able to remove it, restoring affected
filesystem objects from backups (assuming you have said backups and can
identify which objects are affected), restoring the system from a drive
image (assuming you have one), or reformatting and reinstalling
everything (and making sure you follow all the internet survival
guidelines to make sure your machine isn't compromised again in the time
it takes to apply all the security updates)...
