I can't wait to get home to see these, they don't work on this government computer. Got stuck working this morning.

FYI Boys & Girls - Heavy.com dropped a Key Logger onto my PC that (3) of my AV programs did not pick up along with several SpyWare \ Adware controls.

I've been in IT for 20 years, hence; my advice to you is avoid that site...
:NO:

How did you eventually figure it out? Process checking or firewall?
SOT - I noticed a peculiar file in my WIINT/downloaded Program Files directory (One of the typical locations for spyware on a 2000 OS) and saw a file called "bridge.inf" that I examined with a hex editor. It is definitely a key logger..

…Sorry about that. I didn't know.. :huh:
Not your fault pal, it's the anti-social, scumbag, losers with too much time and too little friends…

Thanks for the heads up Kozmo, my malware scan didn't find anything, but I'll run the AV scan and see what happens.
Sgt. Berniedo & SOT - this this blew my mind! My current, updated Norton AV missed it, older versions of McAfee & Panda missed it (but I'm not surprised), Lavasofts "AdAware" & Spybots "Search & Destroy" missed it, and it got through my ZoneAlarm firewall. (Not sure what port it uses or if it was able to relay the keystrokes or not.). But guess who nailed it? Yahoo's free "Anti-Spy" for Yahoo Toolbar!! A free Yahoo utility... I have to laugh..

The Signature turned out to be:
TrojanSpy.Win32.briss.d along with a bunch of adware & Tracking Cookies.

What browser are you using? I didn't get it...maybe it's an exploit due to missing patches on your browser or the browser you are using?

Channy - I believe locking the topic would just prevent re-posting to it, not viewing the existing posts. You might want to see if you could edit the original post and edit or delete the links.

Hmmm, I wonder what else has slipped through all my boobie traps. I had a real problem with this stuff before. I had to go into the registry files and manually delete some of those key loggers and trojan dialers etc. I use Windows XP and I've downloaded all the new security patches, firewalls and watch emails, but you never know. I also get rid of cookies and internet files that pile up. These clowns keep finding new ways to invade your computer. :evil:
