RU Botted says I have a bot
Posted on 2012-03-25
I have RU Botted installed on my XP Pro Desktop.
I just logged into my EE account and immediately I got the message
"Some has launched malicious software on your computer by remote control"
and would I like to use Trend Micro House Call to clean my computer for free.
Having had customers who responded in the affirmative and then entered their CC info, I did not go any further.
I do have Comcast's complimentary version of Norton installed in case that might have caused a conflict. Needless to say, Norton didn't catch the virus or bot; if there really is one.
I've noticed no drag in performance or any other abnormality.
