I have been in the IT field for 15 years; hardware, software and everything inbetween except programming. Just completed my Cisco CCNA classes and preparing to take the exam. I spend 60% of my day bouncing around between customer's locations cleaning up spyware and virus issues. Occassionally, I will see obvious instances where someone has hacked into a network - usually when the hacker was not good enough to cover their tracks. Most of the virus/spyware issues from downloads. The rest of my time will be doing installs and general networking issues.
I often use ComboFix, thereby the reason on this site. Between work and study I am usually so busy that I seldom get time to frequent a site like this. I hope to change that soon though once I get my Cisco certs.
Did anyone else read the new novel out called Zero Day. I think that Mark followed me around when he wrote the book.
