So I'm sitting here a few minutes ago, reading a thread about trojans on this site, and what do you know, my virus scan program (mcafee) alerts me that a trojan was "detected and cleaned" I can't remember exactly what it's name was, maybe gen.com??? Does that sound right? I was completely freaked because that was the first time in over 3 years of owning a computer that I've had anything like that to happen. I have been super paranoid the last few days because of a recent incident involving my bank account...seems someone helped themselves to my debit card and went wild buying "vitamins" yeah right
Anyway, I still don't know how they obtained the info, but I have to wonder if a 3rd party intercepted my account info during a past online transaction?? As you can tell, my knowledge is very limited when it comes to computers and I have a newly instituted fear when it comes to my personal indentity and the internet. It's as if I feel like someone is watching me...remember that song?
I guess my question is, how did I receive a trojan while being on this website? I know other processes are running, I'm just trying to understand things a little better so that I can protect myself.
