    Trojan attacks Microsoft's anti-spyware

    http://news.zdnet.com/2100-1009_22-5...=zdfd.newsfeed

    That was quick.

    From another source

    disables Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta in an attempt to suppress any warning messages the package might display. It also deletes files within the program's folder. Unlike other items of malware, BankAsh-A makes no attempt to turn off anti-virus apps.

    Microsoft probes anti-spyware Trojan

    There getting serious about this one.

    http://news.zdnet.com/2100-1009_22-5...=zdfd.newsfeed

    "Microsoft is actively investigating new public reports of a criminal attack, known as the 'Bankash-A Trojan',"
    You ususally don't see it called a criminal attack.

    "Customers who believe they have been attacked should contact their local FBI office or post their complaint on www.ifccfbi.gov. Customers outside the U.S. should contact the national law enforcement agency in their country."
    I wonder if they're worried about civil liability in this one?

    uh uh!

    Nope. Not blaming him, I just sort of "admire" his popularity... By any means, ups or downs, believed me, it adds up to his score.

    Maybe, Bill should carefully check the goods before he buy, well, just a thought, no harm done, man!

    Giant happens to be one of the best developers of this type of software. The product he bought was/is very good. NO CODE IS PERFECT, the thing is now that MS got there hands on it, the program has a HUGE customer base now, therefore finding the exploits is now worth the time and trouble. it only adds up to "his score" becasue of idiots, and misinformed people who think they know what they are talking about spreading trash on the internet.

    And if a search had been done before posting the following thread WITH THE SAME TITLE would have been found:

    and at this time it is still on the front page,,,

    (oh and if your half blind like me.. put yer glasses on)

    Virus writers have created a malicious program that can disable Microsoft's new anti-spyware application, security experts warned on Wednesday.

    Antivirus experts, who are calling the Trojan "Bankash-A," say it is the first piece of malicious software to attack Windows AntiSpyware, which is still in beta.
    OK HOW is this special..how is this a flaw in the program.. a coder can write a program that can disable any application, the problem here is the trojan has enetred the machine.. trojans, worms and viruses have been disabling Antivirus applications for a while.. hmm we don't see a big cry about the adware that disables Adaware or Spybot snd.. well there are **** loads of them

    scratchONtheBOX, I have commented once this morning WTF are you on about.. perhaps I should ask WHAT ARE YOU ON.. or is it the pre-pubecent hormones that infect all 12-13 yr olds
    or for goodness sake defend your opinion..
    I just sort of "admire" his popularity
    bloody hell Bill isn't popular he is just ****ing rich..hmm yeh i supose that makes you popular.. Bill gets the blame for anything microsoft because he founded the company.. **** he even gets condemed when the the cleaners fart in the tea room... bloody hell start a new trend.. give us information not lame arse opinion.

    ?

    It's some information, right? More to come, I think...

    OK, I guess opinions should be carefully *checked (?)

    And, I just don't want to make this "BIG" right now...

    Just like you said, like a blog (maybe I have done it like this way, I will try to be more informative).

    Peace!
