    Viruses and Passwords

    Hey all.

    I had a virus in my other computer last week, and the computer also had to be reformatted, so i reformatted him.

    After I reinstalled everything (took me some time , I found that my email password got changed! trust me, I write the password right. thats not the problem. I suspect that the virus sent/changed my password... Im also afraid that maybe other passwords got changed?

    I heared about a virus named baruk (or something similar) that send passwords of the infected computer.

    Do you know about any other viruses that send ANY passwords (specially mail passwords)?

    Almost any virus in the trojan family is capable of stealing passwords of all sorts, my suggestion is go back and change every password you have for anything. Here is a list of viruses that are in the trojan famlily
