ITT: Viruses/Spyware.

As far as I know, I think I have been virus/spyware free for the past 3 years, ever since I got my own computer.

Maybe not, I just know AVG/Avast hasn't picked anything in a while.

Think I had a couple Trojans before I got avast, but nothing serious.

    switch to Avira. It catches more shit than AVG. Your machine might seem ok, but you may still have a trojan running without you even knowing it, especially if you've been rooted.
    i'm not sure which entity leaves people more abused and lost; the Porn Industry or Bad Boy Records.

    highly incorrect.

    Avira is free and it's amazing, true the purchased version is better, but for freeware the shit works a lot better than the more expensive shit. Seriously, the heuristic algorithms work well and pick up a lot of shit that hasn't even been officially verified to be malware.

    Go ahead and pay for Symantec or bootleg it. The Chinese groups have their source code to it due to a joint venture between Symantec and Huawei Technologies back in 2007. A month or so after the partnership, new trojans and whatnot started to appear that were specifically targeting and defeating Symantec products. To this day, Symantec is the most exploitable AV software on the market.

    I have Avast. Works ok so far. Run it in safemode. And malwarebytes while you're at it. Also if you feel like something is truly wrong, run Combofix and give the log to someone who knows and who won't intetionally tell you to delete something vital so they can pick out any malicious entries.

    that shit is real. And it's not that it chills until a later date either, some of 'em send out a minor beacon pulse to their home server... just as a kind of way of saying "I'm alive and waiting for instructions".

    I wish I could post up some shit from the whitepaper I coauthored at the beginning of this year. It dealt specifically with new types of malware threats and network security in general. Shit is crazy as fuck out there
