Completely Hacked

955 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  khazars
I have been completely hacked. Backdoor trojan for sure. (my fault for being stupid)
My hacker is sending me emails from my email address..and changing my myspace .. doesn't matter if I change my password.. takes him only mins to recover it... so its pretty bad.
I am wiping the hard drive of the infected laptop right now. I have three other laptops that use the password protected wireless router in my home. Do I need to be concerned with these other machines or can I do a complete wipe and reinstall on the infected machine and call it good?

Does anyone have an answer to my first post question????
hi, welcome to TSG.

Download hijack this from the link below.Please do this. Click here:

to download HijackThis. Click scan and save a logfile, then post it here so
we can take a look at it for you. Don't click fix on anything in hijack this
as most of the files are legitimate.
I have wiped the hard drive of the infected computer.. do you want me to download hijackthis from that machine?
No, no point now, i guess you'll just install the operating system which means you'll get a nice clean computer back! ;)

if you need advice on security to prevent viruses etc then post back once you've reinstalled, make sure to install a firewall and an up to date anti virus program!

some freebies:

Comodo firewall. Sign up it's free!

only install one anti virus program!
