Just following protocol and saying hello as an intro...

Came here from a recommendation from Hostgator support personnel suggesting this forum and some of the tools here may solve a persistent problem with some kind of bot/trojan/whatever sniffing my host account pwds and changing them, in effect locking me out 'til I get support again to give me another...

So, I'm off to the tools (I guess they are called 'removal guides" here), to see what is offered that may help my infected machines/network/etc.

Maybe I'll find a specific forum (or, if anyone could suggest one) that may help my efforts to root out the password sniffer/trojan/virus, etc.

Hope to see you around the forum and, of course, should I remedy MY problem, I will definitely post back my solution for others to benefit from should their situation match mine...

thanks all,
Gail Fernley

Hello and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw
