My wife managed to get her PC infected by Powessere.A!reg.
I have no idea how she did it. She was web surfinig on some very questionable sites using mainly the Chrome for PC browser.
She had MalwareBytes (MB) running actively so it immediately started blocking Powessere.A!reg which kept trying to ping out, and which immediately brought me to her office.
How can I stop this from happening again?? Her browser of choice is MSIE, but she decided to use Chrome on this day.
Normally we use Firefox, and I have never seen it get a PC infected like this. I was unable to detect or remove the trojan with MB but MSSE saw it on a scan and apparently removed it. I then proceeded out of paranoia to run every other AV I could get my hands on, and none saw anything any longer.
So how do i make web surfing safer???
