With the new rash of viruses around, I decided to do several full-out scans on my work laptop. I run Norton Antivirus and a personal desktop firewall (ZoneLabs) I think - a relatively safe configuration I had assumed - given that I am always behind a firewall (office, home or customer). Apparently not. Norton Antirus was updated today via live update - no viruses found. My ZoneLabs firewall didn't detect any traffic coming/going. Clean and clear? Again, bad assumption.
I ran my favourite tool, McAfee Stinger.exe, a free virus checker (google it) and it came up with 2 viruses! WTF? It said that it couldn't clean the files so I did some research and found maybe 15 related files on my HD! Damn, these guys have wasted 2-4 hours of my time. phucking computer-squids.
The worst part is both these viruses collect passwords - which I have many, given my clients. Damn... I feel violated.
