so today at work when I logged into my hotmail, i got an intrusion. it made a fake virus program antivirus soft or soemthing like that. was a very long .exe name like mgcfpcwd.exe or something like that. now, on my home computer i logged into hotmail and it is super slow and lags my whole computer like it did at work and then norton finally tells me it blocked an intrusion.
risk name: MSIE attribute handler code exec
attacker url: hXXp://sn103w.snt103.mail.live.com/default.aspx?wa=wsignin1.0
"network traffic was deteced that matches the signature of a known attack. the attack was resulted from c:\program files\internet explorer\ieplore.exe. to stop being notified...etc.'
sooo, is msn hacked? hotmail side only? anyone else have this problem?
my work computer is xp and home is vista...both IE8. i did not click a link to goto my email. i typed msn.com then clicked the msn link for hotmail. so unless the initial msn.com home page is hacked i dont know.
think this is a false alert? my home comptuer didnt get the fake antispyware thing becasue im assuming norton stopped it in time. any suggestions??
