I'm hoping someone might be kind enough to walk me through the process of checking if my machine is compromised and if so, to help sanitize it.
Background to problem
I admin several websites which have just been subject to the hack outlined here: http://frazierit.com/blog/?p=103 The attackers seem to have acquired the FTP username & passwords for the hosting, which suggests that possibly my machine is compromised. There are of course other ways they could have acquired them but I need to start by checking if my own house is in order.
If anyone would be able to help me run some tests to ascertain if the problem lies with my machine, and help me fix it I would be very very grateful.
System: XP V2002 SP3
I have run malwarebytes, superantispyware, spybot search & destroy, no problems found
I am running a full scan with Avira (my resident antivirus) as I write this post.
I also have comodo firewall running.
Thanks in advance
Avira came back clean but with 9 'hidden objects' I can post the details if requested.
