Hi all, I'm running Windows 98, IE6 on a PII with 256Mb RAM. I am very security conscious as I do regard spyware of any kind as a personal theft attack. I have Trend Internet Security running, for my anti-virus requirements and Spyware Blaster, SpyBot S&D and Spy Sweeper to combat spyware. As well as the built-in firewall that comes with the Trend product, I also run Sygate Personal Firewall (free version). I stay current with software updates for all. Last evening, I downloaded a newer version of Spy Sweeper and immediately gave it a run. It turned up a key logger by the name of AMECISCO, which it apparently dealt with. What I want to know is whether my security has been compromised, and more especially, how I might determine if it has been on my kit for some time and none of my softwares had the means to detect it, or if it was a new attack that I have now hopefully nipped in the bud? I don't have any idea as to just what could happen as a consequence, or whether there is any need for me to make any changes to any banking details, for instance. I believe that key logging records keystrokes BEFORE encryption and that therefore any secure connections used are irrelevant. I also think that this particular scumware has the ability to remain pretty much invisible and can have variable names and file locations. Never had one of these before and so far my slightly "belt and braces" set-up would appear to have looked after me reasonably well - but is it time to hit the panic button now . . . or should I just make a pot of tea, sit down and calm down about it all? All thoughts very much appreciated here - with thanks. Regards eljay.
