    On one of the PC's I use at home, we had a trojan like this, and this allowed whoever to get access to our online bank account. We didnt even know someone at viewed our account until the bank contacted us and told us, someone from a fraudulent IP address had access the account.

    The exploit worked by using the trojan and rewriting our "hosts" file in the system32 directory with a huge list of bank website addresses including our own banking website. Whenever we went to actually log into the site, unbeknown to us we were being redirected to a fake site, displaying the same info as the bank website, even allowing you to "login", & verifying your questions before eventually giving an error message stating the service was currently unavailiable due to maintenance issues...............


    Luckily we didnt lose any money or anything else:)

    Not to my knowledge, but I guess being realistic, I wont know unless something comes and bite my arse.....its been about a year since now that happened though and weve had nothing dodgy happened,

    In fact the only money gone missing from my wage is usually followed by a parcel to my door which contains ladies shoes,..........so I know the wife has been on ebay again:)

    As well as get an upto date anti virus software and firewall like Zone alarm installed. I also like to run spyware blaster in the background including spybot from time to time along side updates from MS web site.

    You might also want to run Firefox as your main internet browser including netcraft tool bar. Best wishes and just be carefuk when on the web site in general:)

    Ive done all of that, I had most that beforehand as well, iusually quite careful with my cirus, malware, spyware software and have quite a different variations of software at hand.

    but I think the issue lay in I disabled some automatic updates once for one reason or another and seem to miss turning it back on..........I wont be doing that again:rolleyes:

    and yes password has been changed and security questions have all been altered etc :)
