tschofie Posted October 11, 2010 Share Posted October 11, 2010 My technophobe father checked his email on my computer while I was logged into my own email account, and shortly thereafter I discovered that I'd been flooding friends and family with, well, you know what. I closed the browser; ran msconfig; updated SUPERanitspyware (free), Spybot S&D, Pandacloud, Spywareblaster, Avast antivirus (free); then got offline and ran 'em. Nothing, nothing. Next was McAfee's latest stinger, Rootkitrevealer, Sophos antirootkit. Nuthin'. Now I'm really mad. Either there's something devious going on, or one of my knee-jerk reactions obliterated the worm, or... I just don't know what to look for. Anybody know what's going on? The spam itself was left in my outbox -- definitely not a neat job -- and seems to point to various corruptions of USnews' website, eg. 'us-newsonline dot net', 'read-usnews dot com', 'usnews9 dot com', etc. It's all weight-loss-type spam. Halp! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
