Posted 26 October 2009 - 10:16 AM

I was on AOL late last evening, and someone sent me an IQ test, that I've never heard of. Obviously, I did not click the link, just closed out the box.
Well, this morning I wake up, and find out I've sent the same link to numerous people, including myself (because I have myself on there).
I ran Spybot, AVG, and Housecall Trendmicro, that found nothing. Any suggestions? Here's my HJT log.

I have something more to add, i'm not so sure I even logged into my account (thus, possibly no keylogger) after the fact. Is it possible an AIM/AOL account could be bruteforced? I did log into my email and bank account after, but those are fine (and yes, changed PW on another PC) but since I didn't go to his link initially, and don't recall re-logging back on AIM, I'm thinking someone may have bruteforced the account since they did have my IM name after he sent me the link, and my password was generally "easy" on a scale of 1-10 (probably a 2).
