What happened I can't say for sure, but we had just moved into our new house and was finally able to connect on high speed; after 8 years of being stuck in dial-up [bleep]!!!!!
I run Symantec Antivirus Corp. Edition Gold with Live update and check for updates every couple of days. We use Verizon.
Not an half hour after being connected on broadband I got hit with a backdoor attacker that Symantec quickly caught and eradicated. I'm not sure if the troj_agent came in with it or what. I was doing political research on the web for an article I'm writing, and can't figure what happened.
I just hope it doesn't happen again. Either way, thank you - you're a life safer and hopefully I can get back to work in the am.
Also - I actually have the firefox downloaded, but I haven't installed it yet. My husband is giving me a hard time about changing browsers, so to keep the peace.... well you get my drift I'm sure. I downloaded it because the guys on techtv said it's a better browser. Now to convince my husband. hehehe
