    Welcome to the ZoneLabs User Forum..

    I JUST RAN A &quot;google&quot; SEARCH ON 'vodei keygen.exe', and that program related to something to do with &quot;Ponagraphy and or a Crack Kengenerator downloaded from a Porno site&quot;

    I use &quot;McAfee Siteadvisor&quot; with my IE Browser, and all of the Referenced Websited were moarked by &quot;McAfee SiteAdvisor&quot; as
    Dangerious Web-Sites&quot;

    I would advise you to go to the following WebSite and Run the Free Online Mailware/Spyware Check from &quot;EWIDO&quot;

    http://www.ewido.net/en/onlinescan/

    also, another good Free Online Check for VIRUSES is: www.kaspersky.com

    Please post back and let us know if that found and fixed something..

    In ran your site through link scanner and George is correct ,this site is definitely enemy territory.Anything downloaded from there should be considered malicious.

    Thank you guys for providing the info
    :8}
    George !I have done what you have advised and I got back the following:
    Ewido - detected some cookies which it deletedKaspersky - detected 6 viruses and 19 infected objects (all skipped) if that means anything ?From all of the viruses and infected objects
    only one was 'selectable',
    which was the following, but none
    had the option to be fixed or quarantined
    !C:\WINDOWS\system32\winjyg32.dll






    Infected: Trojan.Win32.Agent.aae
    I don't believe any of the above really means much though does it ?


    Any more ideas that could help me find out what vodei_keygen.exe could have done to my desktop ?I am
    worried that private information could be leaked from my
    machine as I use Internet Banking and other financial websites !

    In addition to what Senior Contributor George V suggest also run a few other online scans at
    http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html
    http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan?

    When your done start your computer in safe mode run a virus scan . Once finished Restart your computer normally run another scan to insure your clean, if not turn off system restore run the scan once again.When your done turn system restore back on.
    You'll want to make sure your computer is clean I also suggest posting a hijackthis log at Castlecops
    http://www.castlecops.com/


    Consider all your private information has been compromised. Notify your bank, change all your passwords, preferable using another computer, keep and eye on all your credit card transactions.
    Please let us know how all this turns out. Good luck

    I would like to thank you both [GeorgeV and Greb49er] as your suggestions are very supportive !

    Regarding what you fellas have advised me to do, I have become puzzled upon one factor




    With all these online virus, spyware tools that you have informed me about, it seems like ZonaAlarms is not efficient ?

    I would like to apologies if I sound like a hypocrite right now, but does not all these free online tools detriment the purpose for purchasing ZoneAlarms ?




    Anyway, regarding your last posts to me,
    George and Fre49er, I will action them
    straight away

    Thanks once again, and I shall reply shortly

    Hi

    The fact is one user can have barest mininium of security and be absolutely free of any malware all the time, while another user can have the PC armed to nth degree and be plagued with malware all the time.

    "Worms, Viruses and trojans and spyware".


    1) Internet threats:
    ActiveX, Referer, Webbugs, VBS, Cookies,Java and JavaScripts are all exploits, used by sites or hackers, that can be avoided so easily simply by adjusting the Privacy of the browser itself or using the ZA Pro Privacy features or both. Browser caches and cookies should be deleted after each surf session. The alternative browser such as FireFox and Opera use neither ActiveX or VBS and neither are directly attached to the Windows OS in the same way as the IE.
    SPI/NAT routers will: hide your PC's true address, protect the PC from port scans and provide true stealth, keep out all unwanted internet connections and just allow the traffic that you want or allow, inspects incoming internet packets. Plus ports can be closed and sites can be blocked from connecting.
    IRC and mIRC is noted for trojans and malware. Avoid this completely.
    P2P and similiar file sharing has certains risks of malware infections. Avoid this completely.
    Unsafe sites are not a place to download. Remember nothing is free- there is always some mention in the EULA about third party installation or it just comes bundled with malware. You have seen this for yourself. Security sites and well known sites are usually safe, but check these out carefully before downloading and installing
    IM's should be secured properly and properly setup.
    Email clients can be set up to be more secure. Scan with antivirus and do not open attachments from unknown senders. Block all spam and do not give out your email needlessly or without first thinking if the other party is a friend or foe.
    Host files, site blockers, site advisors, adblockers and antiphishing are valuable to filter and help secure the Internet.
    Use a software firewall to secure the connections of the PC is needed with the hardware firewall.
    Closing unwanted windows ports and for some users turning off the updaters of the software applications and utilities will (this will reduce the risks and keep ports closed).

    2) PC Threats
    Hardening the Windows in the Services, Registry, Startup, DCOM, NIC and in the settings will alone help make the PC impervious or vulnerable.
    Using an real time antvirus and update it daily and scan once a week.
    Update the Windows and keep it up to date.
    Do not lend your PC or leave it unsecured- use a password to enter.
    Use the Limited Privilege account. It alone will prevent malware installations to complete and infect the PC. One of the least used security feature of Windows and one of the most valuable.
    Use the DEP feature in the Windows OS.
    Use the System Restore and make backups. If somethinmg goes wrong, the damage can be reduced.
    Keep the Windows properly maintained. Defrag and Disk clean and disk check on regular intervals.

    3) Use your head. The most valuable security asset is not in the PC, but what is sitting in the chair in front of the PC.
