Hi, Have you ever had a Rootkit,backdoor troan or IRC bot on this PC?

These allow hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.

I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.

In the USA, you might have a problem. Lots of good info on online poker in links below.

Hello, sorry for not being clear. First I have no info on a good poker site. I am saying that if you had/have any of those infections ON your PC then you need to take some action. Those infections will steal all the financial/personal info that you are going to have to provide. I do not want to see you become a victim of Identity theft.. An ounce of prevention principle.....

Hi s1lents0ul

One thing you need to be aware of in addition to the well needed warnings regarding viral infection, the theft of sensitive personal info.

On-line gambling is illegal in the U.S. I am not passing judgment or saying you what you should or should not to because of that fact. What I am saying is that all on-line gambling sites are based outside of U.S. borders. There fore outside of U.S. legal jurisdiction. Should you have any problem regarding legal matters you will have Zero legal recourse.

Not to mention that in order to even attempt legal action you would in affect have to admit you were breaking the law.

I understand that if foul play occurs, that I would have no leg to stand on. Many people must play online poker since It has made such a big, but I presume that americans still play online. I have downloaded a platform but have not used real money on it, just the pretend play money they give you. Is that action, "using fake money" still considered gambling and illegal in U.S?

I really have no idea at what point the legal line is crossed.

There are probably hundreds of thousands of U.S. that play at the various gambling sites available. I have never read or heard of any facing prosecution for doing so. Either for play or real money. Does not mean it has`t happened.

A while back I did read of a group of players that found a way to crack the system used by several of the sites. Made quit a haul before being outed by some other players.

The final decision is yours of course. We are just trying to make you aware of all the potential risks.
There is nothing to stop theses sites from making a cash killing over the course of time then simply closing down and the owners disappearing into the night with your`s and others money.

That would be quite a dissapointment, I will hope that it does not happen. Thank you, everyone, for the input.

If you use a US based financial institution for transactions for 'real money' you would be committing wire fraud. It is still illegal at this point for any US based financial institution to complete a transaction with any online gambling site.

Since currently this is still an illegal venture in the US, regardless of pending legislation. We will conform to Bleeping Computer rules and close this topic.
