For those very new to this area, please google SIM SWAP and discover a very nasty security issue with all phones we use today. At first glance the new security researcher might think I'm exaggerating. Do your own research and tell me you don't find this to be one of the most foul, nasty exploits I've seen in years. This exploit was recently used to highjack a writer's phone at https://www.zdnet.com/article/sim-swap-horror-story-ive-lost-decades-of-data-and-google-wont-lift-a-finger/ His case is still developing with loss of accounts, tax returns he stored on the Clouds, and a 25,000USD Bitcoin purchase.

CryptoWall 4.0 the newest ransomware to date is been spread by Angler Exploit Kits. A new drive-by download campaign is to blame for this attack. Heimdal was the first to discover the malware nearly one month ago. It's also more stealthier than previous versions and also a lot stronger. This time the message is different and more filenames had been added to the list. Also users have to fork out $700 for the decryption key which makes it a hefty price to pay. Firstly the Pony Information Stealer scrapes the computer of usernames and passwords by scouring the victims computer. …

Keep getting this interrupting intermittently but when doing so is very persistent. Have tried ALL suggested methods (Google articles, Adwcleaner, Junk Rem, oval Tool, AVGMalware*bytes*, delete adnxs cookie etc.) and it seems to disappear although the tools don't say they have found anything untoward. I think it is something to do with IE - system seems to think I have IE11 installed, other parts think IE9 (e.g. www.thismachine.info). Trying to install IE11 again, which MS site says it is the right IE for Win 7 which I use but near end of install it says 'wrong version for your OS'! …

Hi All. I developed software and use a software activation security company. The problem is, every time somebody tries my software, they get false positive virus alerts from different Anti Virus companies. During my last experience with Avira, it took me nearly 6 months of telephone calls to get them to put my software on their safe list even though they were false alerts. Does anybody know a quicker way to cut through the bureaucracy? Thank You!

My daughter has a mobile phone running windows. The phone is a HTC Diamond 2. She is being redirected to www.juego.com Everything I can find suggests that it might be a rootkit. Nothing I can find relates at all to removing from a mobile phone. Only desktops. Is someone able to point me to some help?

Just wanted to give more credit to the Daniweb, for having information on this anti-malware tool. No other websites I found at the time had any information on it. We had one of those root kits (aluron) that prevented us from browsing the internet - and redirected the browser to shopping websites. All of our other favorite anti-malware tools, such as Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Microsoft Security Essentials, CCleaner, Gmer, BlackLight,...were not able to remove it. Finally we tried TDSSkiller, a free download from Kaspersky Labs, and that removed it. It required rebooting, and the virus erases the IP address and DNS …

This has been going on for about a week now with a friend of mine who uses AIM. Since last Thursday, I've been having trouble communicating with her through AIM or any other client I've tried in which I've used AIM to contact her, be it AOL Instant Messenger itself, Gaim/Pidgin, Trillian, Meebo, and the like, and I've attempted to contact said friend across several different screennames. She hasn't blocked me, as I can clearly SEE her online, and she isn't just ignoring me as we can talk (albeit in limited capacity) on other clients or web apps. At one …

Hello - I have reviewed the "read me before posting a request..." thread and hate to say that I cannot even get that far in my attempt to remove this virus. Whatever I have downloaded is causing an automatic reboot loop. I have attempted to start in safe mode (by pressing F8 at start up) to access repair option as other forums have suggested but nothing happens. Right before reboot loops again a blue screen appear, but disappears before I can read it. Any suggestions on getting around this issue so I can proceed with the cleaning process as you've …
