VIRUS ALERT

Recommended Posts

Hi folksicon_smile.gif

Today I opened up my overflowing e-mail box and found a strange header from a user named frenetic with the subject line "Geoquilt". His message was the following:

Hi there, I need an opinion from a moderator from the

http://www.geocaching.com webiste. I love that forum,

and I think I can help , I am trying to put together a

little app for the users.

 

Please give this thing a try (see attachment), and

give me any feedback you can, this will greatly help

me!

 

thanks

 

Jerry


 

Now obviously this attachment caused me to raise an eyebrow and run a virus scan. Lo and behold it most certainly was a Trojan.logger program. Just thought I'd bring it to everyone's attention....I'll post it in the geoquilt topic as well in the event this little turd has sent it out to others involved in the project.

Cheers, cliffy icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the heads up. No sign of any nasties here. Trojans are worse in some ways than a virus and many anti virus programs simply do not catch them. Ah, the joys of the information age.

 

Take care

 

Happy caching
