BD Thing 1.6 ?!?!?! What' going on?!
Posted on 2006-11-07
Hi. I'm running XP SP2. I have a cable at home with router. Then I have home wireless network protected by filtering MAC numbers (only specific MAC numbers allowed access wifi router). I had used Bittorrent to download stuff in the past and to use it I had to open up a specific port for it for IP forwording. Port that I opened was 6200 or 6400 either one.
Now, here's my issue:
Last night while checking email (i use a POP3 program that loads email into my machine from my ISP server) my Norton Antivirus came up with message that something's trying to break into my computer. In details it said that I had BD Thing 1.6 trying to break into my machine. I could not load my emails, the email update would be interrupted by Norton with that message.
I looked up on Symantec website about BD Thing and it sounds like it's a Trojan that looks for open ports on machines and gives access to remote coputers. Does this mean I already have the trojan or an email that was coming in had that trojan and Norton blocked it? Why wouldn't Norton dete the email with trojan, it's done it in the past. I still can't load my emails and I get the same BD Thing message every time i do Send/Receive. Can someone help?!?
Thanks a lot Experts!!!
