According to news published today at MSFN, some of the copies leaked of W7 RC are infected with Trojans, something that does not surprise me at all.

Various torrents of the Windows 7 RC have been infected with a Trojan that, if allowed to run successfully, could open a security hole in a user’s system. The affected torrents have the setup.exe install file encapsulated in a self-extracting archive, along with an installer for the Trojan itself; launching it triggers an install of both Windows 7 RC and the malware.
