Could someone please explain to me how a computer can get infected, right after reformatting the hard drive? Although, actually, with the type of computer that I have, I performed what is called a "Full System Restore (Destructive)." But anyway, after only opening up Microsoft sites unsanboxed and Mozilla Firefox site and browers unsandboxed, and while creating my Option settings and also getting tons of Microsoft updates...and after performing an emsisoft free online scan, emsisoft detected and neutralized an ftpattack, which wiki explains as: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FTP_bounce_attack And emsisoft's site describes it like this: http://www.emsisoft.com/en/malware/?Trace.Registry.FTPAttack Well, from the second description, I do have a better idea as to where the infection came from. However, in a post in another thread, I had mentioned how: Therefore, I really don't see how my newly reformatted hard drive could have landed a trojan horse. However, the thought did come across my mind that with the plethora of Windows Updates getting installed, perhaps the malware could have entered my system by means of Windows Updates. Also, I found this information: http://www.pcworld.com/article/171331/microsoft_iis_servers_vulnerable_to_ftp_attack.html Additionally, I wanted to mentioned that I did install Firefox, however, I noticed they seemed to have offered a lot more Extensions and Plugins and I kind of played around with them and chose a few new ones. But after I installed the latest version of Firefox, I looked at their Extensions and Plugins and noticed that Metastream 3 Plugin has been disabled due to secrurity. . .issues. Therefore, that seems to be the only other security issue that would have allowed the attempted trojan attack on my limited account. Any comments would be appreciated.
