Half a million infections of latest Trojan

http://tech.uk.msn.com/news/article.aspx?cp-documentid=8258878

Quote:
Medium panic

The Trojan has been denoted as a ‘medium’ threat that doesn’t sound like cause for concern but it is the first malware to be given this high a threat level since 2005.

Cyber-criminals have used different file sizes, different languages and different formats to fool people into running the software, and any attempt to play the file will result in ads being served to the infected computer.

It's 50/50; I never ran any antivirus software on and off for year's, I still dont think I run any on my Media Centre, yet I have never had any problems with Virus's.

Although having said that, I have had Virus's in the past, just nothing fatal.

The one thing is though, I have seen the effects of fatal virus's many time in the past, from messed up computers to keyloggers taking someones bank details, to the likes of the CIH virus, which has rendered the firmware in some devices useless.

Its quite true that if you don't visit dodgy sites, you will usually be okay, but virus's can be spread in various ways, and with too much ease.

As for the likes of Norton slowing down you're PC, all the big boys do because they are coded shite imho; go for better, more accurate and more secure antivirus like Nod32, which whilst offering the very best protection of any software and being used by IT professionals worldwide, it very very light on system resources, to the point that you don't even know its running.

I haven't come across this one yet, and hopefully i wont

My internet security suite updates every 6 hours by default

I'm using Kaspersky Internet Security 7 at the moment, and have found no problems with it, and it doesn't affect the computer's speed at all

When it says file-sharing sites does it mean like, limewire? or rapidshare etc?
