Norton's sonar had detected and deleted Bloodhound.PDF.18 which was found in my temporary internet files on the 16th of December. More recently i've just had a intrusion prevented when I was on a legit sit (I think by an advert) and Norton said it was blocking a fake AV being downloaded (i'd put the IP Address of the attacking site but someone might click it just to see). Basic specs:

Win XP
32 Bit
Dimenson 5150
Norton 2010

To make sure the Bloodhound heurisitic wasn't lying around on the 16th I did a MBAM, SAS Free and Norton scan and ran ATF Cleaner to delete the Temporary Internet Files for good. Nothing came up from the scans, but the new intrusion today has got me curious :thumbsup:

Thanks for reading :flowers:
