Re: Help im in Trojan Hell
Well it would appear that those security programs would suffice, they have been emperically proven to do so.. however, if they aren't working, i recommend a reinstall of those, or of your operating system. I know it sounds harsh, but its simple and you dont have to worry about anything else, also, quit running p2p software.

I am a security newbie. For the past coulple of days I have been getting heavy warnings that my system is being hacked using a backdoor/trojan horse. I would like to know how to close the ports and/or clean the trojans off of my system. I am being attacked (i think locally) by a 68.xx.xxx.67 & a 68.xx.xxx.163. Are these local IP's and if so, how can I stop the attacks?
I am currently running:
Windows 2k w/ norton internet security
Moosoft's The cleaner
Norton Antivirus software
Imesh P2P client (is this unsafe?)
I have direct cable/dsl connection to my computer, should I also configure a router and/or proxy settings, and if so how do I do that? Thank you for any help at all.
as for the ip addresses, no those arent local, next time, get the ip and go to dos and type "nslookup iphere"
you will then get a result of who that person's Internet service provider is. Send an email to email@example.com and tell them that that person has been consistently attacking you maliciously. See what happens there.
For some reason i have trouble believing that you are running all of those programs and still having problems, but i suppose it is possible. Always check www.symantec.com and several other sites for reference. >.<
