Off topic unless it starts messing up my AT-L email. . .
After 5 years of laptopping, picked up my first malware.
I have the Artemis![followed by chain of varying alphanumeric]
trojan. McAfee keeps popping up and telling me it 'caught'
it, but the pop-ups continue. And, occasionally, unasked-for
web sites appear in a new Firefox tab. I have an appointment
with a local computer shop on Monday (soonest they could
guarantee one-day turnaround), but this question arises:
Could I be in danger in the meantime??--are my keystrokes
being captured as I enter passwords/logins for online banking,
etc.? Anyone know about "Artemis!"?
Ooops...even as I was typing this, "famoussearchsystems.com"
popped up, unasked. I quickly closed it, but I'll bet I get another
McAfee popup in a minute.
