Have an XP Pro PC that has a continual trojan trying to load - ggf.exe.xxxxx - Kaspersky intercepts the activity and deletes the file; but, after any reboot the file tries to reload itself!!!!!  Anyone have information on how to permanently get rid of " ggf.exe "

Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.
