Guys, and girl(s) [please s be true]
Look i'm using my first post on this forum for a selfish one but I hope it can be a community one too.
Today I had to make a time-felt decision to fly a virus laden user profile over the network into a compressed folder.
The spyware was UKASH.
I understand there might be a hoorah of "OH GOSH" and "JOLLY NO GOOD SIRE". Rest assured, i WILL spank myself to sleep- for pleasure or for pain.
My quiz is this: Outside of (from my understanding, W7 no longer uses predictable, hardcoded memory locations for it's kernel). What threat does this legitimitely pose to the network, apart from any virus detection messages. Can the virus escape out of ... *transfer mode* .. into execution? And how?
