As far as I know, I've had this problem since last week. I'm here for recovery.

I had a flickr account. One of the registered users of my account was infected. The hijacker used her username to post about a dozen babe's related graphics on my site beginning in Feburary.

I didn't review the site until last week. From my homepage I saw the thumbnails, which I took to be spam. I didn't view the files, but just used the checkboxes to delete them.

This user had a daughter that was a member of my daughter's cheerleader squad last fall. There was politics going on which my family had nothing to do with within the sanctioning body. I assumed she spammed the site as some kind of retribution.

I emailed her reminding her that I had nothing to do with the problems and had set up the flicker account as a service to the kids and parents so we could all share our pictures of the kids doing their thing.

The next day when I checked my privoxy log instead of localHost or the header said "...privoxy on babe@the-killer.bz"

running netstat at the command prompt shows at least 4 active connections to babe@the-killer.bz and sometimes dozens of connections waiting to become active.

netfxsl.log shows shadow launcher executed within .net and registry entries hidden, as well as a taskbar icon hidden.

A google search for babe@the-killer.bz only shows references to babe.the-killer.bz, and a few other variations. None with the @ symbol which would log a user into the-killer.bz as babe.

A search of your site for same only delivered me a message suggesting i intoduce myself.

Howdy y'all
