Password Changed automatically
Posted on 2006-03-28
the password of my Windows XP was changed automatically by some reason. Also the password of my internet acces through dial-up doesn't work anymore.
This all started to happen when I installed ITunes from the Ipod CD.
I didn't download anything but some ITunes files and I didn't open any attachments because I got none.
The thing is that I can access my machine now because I just hacked it with Knoppix. Nevertheless I don't feel good about this because I also want to use Netbanking.
The password changing happend over the night.
I have a firewall installed but no Antivirus. But I will check with the Antivirus as soon as possible.
Any suggestions how this could happen because I also don't know about any virus changing passwords of Windows Accounts and even the password of my Login
for the internet provider. (In fact this password is selected by the provider and I shouldn't be able to change it myself)
Thanks for any ideas.
