My boss recently removed this Trojan Peerbot from his system.

He finally caught it using spysweeper which said it removed all traces of the file and the spysweeper website recommends we change all bank account/password information.

We have three machines and each machine is sitting behind a zonelabs firewall, there is also a firewall on the router and we are using NAT.

I wanted to ask a couple of questions: First, how likely is it that this is a false positive?

Furthermore does anyone have an opinion based on past experience or otherwise whether or not we should go as far as to change all our passwords and bank information?

We are concerned as to whether or not it is really that serious because it would take us hours possibly days to change all that information for us and our clients and would be a huge undertaking. If we can avoid it that would be our preference however if the threat is real we would certainly err on the side of caution.

Thanks in advance for your comments,

Ian
