Posted:i was minding my own business, cutting and pasting some text from HoP into an email to send some info on wraps to a friend, and whilst trying to delete some url stuff that came up i noticed my still open HoP browser window was telling me that i was attempting a Hack Attack and that i was being logged!! ARGH!!!!

*hides*

Mr Malcolm Sir, i dont know what i did, but i wasnt trying to hack HoP, i swear! i wouldnt know how even if i wanted to!! ARGH!

*grovels and begs for forgiveness....*

Posted:flynt, i am assuming that another site/application was running on your system when you experienced this shenanigans - we nerds like to call it a trojan. it is less worrying than the huge gusts of wind that have ripped the crap out of melbourne in the last few days.

Posted:Flynt you were looking @ porn again wern't you . only Joking,
I have (infortuantly) come into the same experience as you all i was doing was suring the net and i saw this link (which i shouldn't of clicked on)it was some advert about free software (bla bla bla) ,one thing led to another i clicked and BOOOOOOMMMMMM,
One million fucking links adverts and shit came up, after i finished geting riddo fall the crap i decided to log off to be safe.
I was wrong.........
we got a bill from our ISP and we had used 500 hours over the limit in a month
mum as pissed of as she would ever be wanted to get to the bottom of this... and she did
some fucker at a sydney uni stole our info when he/ she launched all the adverts and links.
if mum had a gun she would of hunted them down

Have i forgot something hmmmm....

Terrence:scot can you hold on for a second? (whilst talking to scot on the phone)
Scot: sure.
Terrence: FFFFFAAAAARRRT

Posted:Get Noron virus corperate edition..its great it scans anythign and everything created edit etc...If a virus is detected it will a variety of things...box it up [folder lockdown] warning..deletion..cleanin etc..Most hacking/cracking detection wont tell the potential hacker/cracker that they were detected in order to catch them off guard. and NEVER trust free software unless it explains a whole lot about it. Most of them have spyware suchs as bonzai buddy. And a cable modem is good can be on whenever to login on..emergency shut off button if something is detected..

but thats just my thoughts

Posted:Flynt,

Not sure what happened? But everything is working fine now. Computers can be silly sometimes.
I agree we all must have Virus protection and a firewall is good too.

Posted:And as a back-up use an online virus scanner such as Trend Micro's Housecall.

I suggest a back up because one of the viruses we had a few months ago disabled the Norton Anti virus we had. so it remained undetected until I noticed files changing - sneaky little devil.

Posted:I got my firewall from zonealarm.com

It's come in very handy so far. Although my dad doesn't understand it so he's not allowed near it He has a tendancy to poke at things he doesn't understand

It told me to go to bed the other night. Quite intelligent this HOP creature, but I guess it makes mistakes like the rest of us.
I am sure if you offer it some ice cream all will be forgiven?
