I'm trying to resolve a situation that I've got with my Facebook account. Somehow, the account has either been hacked, hijacked, zombified, whatever -- anyhow, it's been sending out bogus messages to everyone in my Friends list, pointing them to a nasty virus-infesting site called "http://www.now-christmas.com" that was followed by three random letters (the first time; the second time it did this, it used four letters).
I have run Norton's Anti-Virus on my C: drive, to no avail -- the only thing it found was a slew of tracking cookies. Same song, second verse with my perpetual go-to product, Malwarebytes's Anti-Malware -- it didn't find ANYTHING.
I followed the recommendation at the start of this forum and ran the TCPView utility; the results of that scan are included below.
I'm running WinXP Home, SP3, and I believe that all updates to the OS are current.
If anyone has any suggestions on how I can get rid of this, I'd REALLY appreciate it. So far, my Facebook friends have been understanding, but I am sensing that their patience is running thing. I'd also like to know what happened to get my computer into this prediciment in the first place.
Thanks in advance for your help!
