Hey all,

My friend has been building a myspace page for herself using our old computer and all of a sudden I've found multiple trojans, 1 of which was very tough to get rid of.
Could these trojans be coming from the little dealiemajigs (sp?) she's using to decorate her page?

If she's getting any malware from MySpace, then I'd suggest it's emanating from some phished profiles, that are used as bait to scam people into divulging their usernames and passwords.

I'm also quite sure that the old computer must have had the said trojans before, they just started messing about now.

Try to post a HijackThis log in this thread and Pancake will sort you out, if you go directly through his advice, which is strongly recommended.
