Spambot has taken hold of my computer and is sending out emails to my clients, friends and family. If someone could help me get this off of my computer, I would appreciate it. I do need the information in laymen's terms, I'm so not IT (but I learn quickly).

According to IT security outfit Kaspersky, which has just [published details](http://www.securelist.com/en/analysis/204792255/Kaspersky_Security_Bulletin_2012_The_overall_statistics_for_2012) of the information security landscape as it was shaped during 2012, 99% of all mobile malware threats now target Android devices. With 6300 new mobile malware samples discovered every month on average across 2012, Android has become the focus for the criminal fraternity for a second year in a row. The remaining 1% of threats, in case you wondered, were mainly targeting Java and Symbian-based smartphones. Across 2012 as a whole, Kaspersky reports, the number of known malicious samples on the Android platform increased "explosively" compared to the previous …

It is detected as a "potentially unwanted program" (PUP). PUPs are any piece of software that a reasonably security- or privacy-minded computer user may want to be informed of and, in some cases, remove. PUPs are often made by a legitimate corporate entity for some beneficial purpose, but they alter the security state of the computer on which they are installed, or the privacy posture of the user of the system, such that most users will want to be aware of them.) …

It's not just [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story231517.html"]phishing scams[/URL] that Facebook users have to worry about right now, According to Roger Thompson, the Chief Research Officer with security vendor AVG, hacked Facebook applications are increasingly reaching out to exploit sites based in Russia. As Thompson says, this is different to the normal run of things whereby people are linking to hacked pages innocently enough on social networking sites. "These seem to be actual Facebook applications that have been hacked" Thompson points out, adding that the application developers are "innocent victims too". AVG researchers first spotted the trend when a fire-fighter simulation game which it …

For the life of me, I can't find the service or program that keeps installing itself after deletion from Windows XP (Pro, w/ svc pack 3) registry... Does anyone here know of software called "Rabia" (that's the local machine key), with 2 sub-keys, "CodV4Q==", and "DYNV4Q==" containing binary data? My virus/trojan/spybot detectors have found nothing, so I'm stumped. After deletion, these entries appear immediately after a re-boot. Thanks for your help. Don in Oakland

Hi, A couple of weeks ago I had a bad virus on my computer (Anti-Vir 2010 suite or something like that). I ran all the scans out there, and thought i had removed it. But then, my websites and google searches kept getting redirected to other websites. That was the only indication that there was still an infection on my computer. Avast, AVG, Ad-aware, MBAM were all super clean, no infections found. So I recently also downloaded Avira, AntiSuperSpyware, and Spy-Bot search and destroy, and they all found a lot of infections and removed them. But the problem still persists. …

Hello; I recently started having a problem on my Dell E1505 laptop running Windows XP-SP3, where multiple internet browser windows start opening by themselves ramdomly. It doesn't seem to matter if I'm using IE8, Firefox or AOL Browser, the problem keeps happening. There are times where it won't happen for several hours or for a whole day but after I shut down and reboot, it starts again. I'm running Trend Micro Internet Security 2010 and it does not report any viruses or problems. I also downloaded and ran MalwareBytes AntiMalware and it didn't show any problems. I haven't tried Ad-Aware …

Another of those security trending reports has dropped onto my desk, this one coming from PandaLabs which is now apparently part of 'Panda Security, The Cloud Security Company.' Jeez, someone needs to give the marketing director a kick up the pants for that one. Anyway, back to the report: it seems that during the second quarter of 2009, Trojans accounted for 70 percent of all new malware detected. No surprise there then. The [URL="http://www.pandasecurity.com/img/enc/Quarterly_Report_PandaLabs_Q2_2009.pdf"]PandaLabs Quarterly Report[/URL] also 'reveals' that the malicious use of Twitter is a problem. Meh. Sure, we have seen [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4228.html"]cross-scripting worms[/URL] from Mikey, and BlackHat SEO attacks …
