I was using my friend's computer yesterday, when all the sudden the cursor froze. I could still use my keyboard though. I thought it was just a glitch, but all the sudden weird sh*t started to happen. I noticed some kind of installer program open and close really fast.
I was sure this had to be a virus, so I decided to toss Norton and get AVG. I ran a spyware scan with CounterSpy and it found a Trojan Backdoor.
Norton allowed this trojan to install from a website! The software was kept up to date, but it still allowed that crap to get by. And what's hilarious is that the spyware application I installed awhile back detected the virus instead of the Antivirus software Norton! LoL? (The file was located in the Service Pack 2 folder for some odd reason)
Yea, so right now everything is back to normal after removing the trojan and I'm running an AVG scan to be safe. I'm thinking about putting two more antivirus apps on here, but disabling the Autoprotection they have and just using the Scan functions. Nod32 and Kapersky sound good? Or would you reccommend any others?
Maybe I should reinstall windows first, because this is my friend's computer and he runs an online store on here, so it's vital there's no assholes looking at his information.
Mother****ing trojan/hackers. I can't believe this.
