Because I don't trust my home security I have gone to WiFi cafe's to work, hence, in my opinion, the hack's need for SpectorSoft eBlaster to get me wherever I am and have all keystrokes emailed to them.
If the hacks got to my laptop, they are also probably in my desktop - which I am using right now, and my online Uverse Yahoo email. I need to document any possible internet or email link to SpectorSoft and the email or internet address to the perpetrators, "but mostly to at least know I have a secure system that will stay that way!"
My website, with which I attempt to earn a living, has also been recently, but repeatedly, hacked from IP addresses listed on my ftp logs, but which are registered as "private" and that I therefore currently cannot trace. The hacks apparently just use my password and proceed to change my links to sites that download viruses, which is not good for business or SEO.
I am running:
- Norton Internet Security (A/V and firewall, which has never found anything),
- Malwarebytes (with protection mode, which has alerted me to several problems),
- SpyReveal scans in Stealth Mode periodically (which has found a few different keyboard monitors, and lists SpectorSoft eBlaster on my laptop).
- Comodo firewall with the anitivirus background monitoring turned off,
- Spybot periodically (but with their Immunization never used, but which has found a few viruses),
- And Secunia to make sure all files are updated.
I run daily scheduled malware scans with Norton Internet Security, Comodo, and MalwareBytes, but again with only Norton and Malwarebytes running A/V in the background. The Comodo and Norton firewalls are always running though as is Security Task Manager with Spy Protector.
Occasionally I will update all, then run all 4 scans (Norton, Comodo, SpyReveal, and Spybot) followed by reboots, then repeat this 4 times. Often this will show malware on the second run that will not show otherwise. It is how I found SpectorSoft eBlaster on the laptop.
I have an Intel i7 with 6 Gigs DDR3 to hold it all. I'm running XP sp3, which is always updated. I no longer use my wireless keyboard.
In short, I need to:
1) secure my system from attacks and
2) clean it from the damage already done, while
3) collecting any further evidence I can of who is doing this (I think I know).
I can try to cover #3, but I need mostly to clean and secure the system. More evidence to pin it all down would be great though.
If I had money it'd be done by now. I greatly need and appreciate your help. PLEASE ADVISE!!!!!
