I have dual booring vista home service pack 2 and linux mint 17. I have been using linux mint 17 for a week now and not using vista.
Could a virus attack windows while I am in mint? When I am in Vista, whenever my computer connects to the internet AVAST flags a svchost threat. It is always the first time I log in. The address That comes up that Avast blocks is http://anythicago/4242/Termin
....It registers in process explorer as svchost.
I didn't put the entire url because I don't wanr anyone to click it and get the virus. Other addresses will also come up and it's obviously advertising or whatever toolbar.
I have been streaming videos through motionempire.me in linux so that may be the problem. So what are the steps to follow if I wanted to diagnose this through linux?
I am anxious that someone is hijacking my computer
I have done both a boot time scan through avast and complete malwarebytes scan with the reports having no threats.
I can't find any linux antivirus program, and i don't know how to deal with the tar packages as I am a newbie to linux
