I run services from online games like RuneScape on a community forums called Sythe.
I have been growing rapidly over the past month so I have a lot of customers contacting me through Skype, which is my preferred method of communication. Now, as a growing member of Sythe, this puts me on the list to be targeted by hackers and invasive people, and I know this, which is why I have protection.. However; I am worried that they may have gotten past my defenses and it has costed some of my customers their belongings on their games.
I believe I have some sort of Skype rat sending the Chat Logs to whoever ratted me. Skype has been acting different lately but really nothing I would have ever worried about. I've noticed every 10-20 minutes all of my "Recent" conversations on Skype resetting as if I had never looked at them and having the number of "new" messages in an orange circle. Even after reading them, right clicking "Recent" and hitting "Mark All As Read", and deleting all of my conversations, new ones just keep bugging like this.
I have Peerblock running, I did a scan with Avast! and Malwarebytes (both came up clean), and I've been checking suspiciously-named .exes in Task Manager. Nothing has come up that has surprised me. I'm at a loss here.
I reinstalled Skype but of course if the virus is this sophisticated that probably wouldn't do anything.. I have no way of knowing if I'm still ratted, but I staged a conversation with a friend of mine giving the REAL username and REAL password to my personal account to see if that gets hacked as well.. We'll just have to wait and see.
I don't want to accept anymore customers until I get this all sorted out, so please help me out here!
I don't know what to do..
