Malware leeching BW and running up bills ?
Just yesterday I had two clients call in and say there Telephone bill was R13000 (Um around $2000) when it is normally R850 ($100). Their ISP said they had spyware and or malware. The other client said their BW cap ran out in 2 days even though they jsut use Email. And their ISP said it was malware.
They called here and I jsut wasnt convinved that it was spyware / malware. Is this a reality and can this happen to a home user? I would assume these targeted malware attacks would target companies with unlimited BW , not a home user with a 3G cap and someone on 3G.
I told them to get the logs from the ISP.
Any advice on this?
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
