Security Compromised

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Apparently someone managed to get my debit card information (last week)and my yahoo account today. I just changed my password to yahoo and changed my password to another email account for safety purposes.

Now, I'm trying to figure out what happened and how to prevent this from now on. I'm currently using MS Security Essentials and spybot S&D. I do keep them up to date and run scans. I also have a router.

I do not p2p or use torrent. I do not go to poker or porn sites.

Hell, I spend more time playing WOW or watching Netflix than anything else. So what the hell is going on?

In all my years online this is the first time I have ever had any problems. So maybe I need to step up my security.

Any suggestions???
thanks

I will reference my guide here, so check there to find the links and descriptions of programs.

How this happened one can only guess. The best thing to do is move forward, mitigate the damage, and ensure it does not happen again.

Firstly, I would ensure that nothing potentially damaging is done in real life. A service like lifelock is designed for situations such as this. I would recommend using them for a few months to ensure that no damage is being done to your credit rating or other illegal activities.

Second, I would scan your computer with malwarebytes anti-malware, and emsisoft anti-malware. Both combined should do a good job of cleaning out any malware capable of stealing personal data. If you are paranoid feel free to scan with hitman pro- scanning is always free and it uses a few scanners in tandem.

I would then run a second opinion scanner along side your antivirus. I would recommend Prevx. Prevx uses almost no resources and greatly buffs your malware detection capabilities. If you want to change your AV I would reocmmend going over to avast!

Lastly, I would increase my browser security by using Firefox or Chrome along with WOT, OpenDNS, and AVG Link Scanner.

Hope that helps. Feel free to use whatever else you find useful in that guide.

Ok, I am not sure where anyone thinks a browser such as Firefox is secure... its freeware and no longer is produced by a paid person. Thats like saying a MAC cant get a virus.... no its because the virus writers target the flock , not the single targets. Firefox is not security, and will actually allow you to get more infections in the end.

The robust firefox community keeps it safe. The same reason why the robust windows community keeps it safe if you know what you are doing.

may of been a WoW keylogger that found more then wow info. firefox has noscript keyscrambler and flashblock available, if you can get used to them they are a very nice line of defence.

Good, I will have already added WOT. I'm getting ready to download some more programs you suggest and run some more scans to see if they find anything.
thanks!

Take a look at the Wilders Security Forum for some good info on protection.
Also, someone mentioned Prevx.
It's great.
And you can get it free by using your Facebook acct..
Good luck.

+rep great advice..
@op: if your really concerned re install windows.. takes a couple of hours for it to be back to normal and scan everything on its way in. Any problems you have will be gone for sure
