Ever hear of a DOS program? I know someone who is having one used against her system at home and she doesn't know how to stop it.
She's saying some kid got a hold of her home ip address and is using a DOS (denial of service) program to bombard her router or modem or whatever so she cant get service. Everything is bogged down.
I recently had a run in with the Windows 7 Internet Security 2012 Malware and now I have a red x in my status bar tray, clicking it shows the Action Center saying "The Windows Security Center Service can't be started". After Googling for hours all that I was able to find about this was to press Windows Key + R, type in "services.msc", look for "Security Center" in the list, and set it's Startup Type to "Automatic (Delayed)".
Last night during my
usual blackhat grayhat travels I managed to get infected with the Win 7. Internet Security 2012 virus / trojan. Mine in particular came via the consrv.dll rootkit which tends to infest itself via bugs in popular software like Adobe producs and Flash. Nice.
This release represents our most significant update in 2 years and we want to thank everyone who helped test along the way.
What’s New in SuperAntiSpyware 5?
I have spent all evening trying to get it off. Any ideas?
|There's a new FaceBook virus going around .... It's actually a "Phish", which means you are baited into going to a false page that looks just like the FaceBook login page, where unsuspecting people may think they've somehow been logged out of FaceBook and re-enter their login and password. Once they do, the "phishermen" log and save your login information, and use your profile however they want.

A worm is circulating among Yahoo Messenger users. It seemingly comes from one of your contacts and probably looks innocent enough. It looks like the following.
The worm arrives via a message from a contact with the word "photo" or "photos" and a smiley face icon, along with a link to a Web site resembling a Facebook page, MySpace page, or some other page where photos might reside.

When shopping for a antivirus program it can be confusing. So many of them look the same and they say they offer basically the same thing that you either take the salesperson recommendation or you use renew the one that came with computer. So just because your computer came with Norton or McAfee does that mean they are the best? Companies like Dell, HP, Acer all come with a trial version of some antivirus so they must have done research to see who really is the best. Yeah think again, they are paid to put the trial anti virus on your computer. Ever notice when you
