    Hey guys...

    I thought it only best to add this in just now in light of a recent conversation ive had with some jr vip's.....


    Ive had funds taken from my bank account via paypal, and as it stands just now, im down a fair wee bit of money..Ive had to close my paypal account, change my bank cards, get a new account number from bank,delete all my emails and go through the procedure of trying to get all this rectified

    I wouldnt wish this on my worst enemy, and would like to ensure i can at least warn others of what could happen to them. I thought my computer was safe, ive got avg and it usually gets any virus's before they can create havok on my computer.

    As it stands right now, ive still no idea how my information was obtained, through some excellent help from other forum members, its been whittled down to either email hack, or some sort of browser tab hack, im still unsure of the details, perhaps some better educated members of the forum could highlight this issue, and maybe provide some tips on how to keep your details safe??

    Dont want this to happen to anyone on this forum!!

    J

    Thanks for the heads up John (I was reading through your post in JR Vip earlier). Sorry to hear what happened and I hope it gets resolved in your favor. It sucks that we have to pretty much wrap our hardrives, CC's etc. with condoms nowadays to keep ourselves protected.

    Post up when you find out a resolution one way or another.

    You most likely got key-logged, or you must have downloaded ANY sort of file that was FUD ( fully undectable) and perhaps there was an iStealer binded wiith it.

    I am from HF so I could help you out as best I can,

    Even without a AV I can download whatever I want and never worry about viruses.

    Scotland, did you trace your steps? What programs did you download from BHW before this happened?

    Go for a full scan with Malwarebytes. It will probably find any keylogger..

    + Run SpyBot - Search And Destroy.

    Malwarebytes is not what is used to be. Run Hitman Pro, they have a free 30 day trial. you'll be suprised at what you find.:D

    AVG will not pick up anything ever. Ever. I had 4 viruses on my old comp before I used it for IM, AVG said everything was fine, ran Malware bytes + Hitman + Spybot and it got 4.

    I'm trying to post a message with details of what I use to thwart such problems but, the system states that I am trying to post spam and does not permit me post. :/

    don't rely on AV to protect you.

    get sandboxie and always use it to login to PayPal using a separate browser that's used only for financial sites. Problem solved.

    Use Spy Sweeper for AV. Been using it for 4 yrs. No problems.

    that and most importantly have a tool to view your http traffic, you should atleast know your http traffic so you can see any suspicious connections.

    Is your PayPal connected to the MasterCard that PP offers? Is so, that could be your problem. I had the same thing happen, only someone had hacked into MasterCards database and that is how they got it into the account.

    I will have to read your post in Jr Vip.

    Hope you get your money back.
