I have Norton Security 2006 on my computer.
Last week I down loaded the new Yahoo tool bar. Norton has apparently now teemed up with Yahoo because Norton is now doing the scans Yahoo used to do. The Norton icon is in the Yahoo Tool bar.
I did a full system scan a few minuets ago using the Norton scan that came with Yahoo.
The scan results reported that I had a trojan called BIGEYE in my system.
I looked it up on Google and it turns out to be a very high risk type item.
They described it as being a RAT (Remote Access Trojan)
I deleted it.
My question is this.
How come Norton Security 2006 did not catch it before it entered the computer ?
If Yahoo's Norton program detected it, it seems to me the product that I purchased should have caught it in the first palce.
I also have: SpyWare Blaster, Spyware Guard, SpyBot-S&D, Ad-Aware, ewido and Windows Defender.
They all missed it to.
(Windows XP, SP2, IE )
Thanks for your time.
