I have been attacked by malware known as MIXIDJ It is known for replacing the default search engine and suspected of stealing passwords and copying keyboard input.
My search engine was replaced by it, but I have no way of knowing whether it has snooped through my HD or monitored my passwords. But it is scary stuff.
I bought my computer 18 months ago, with Norton Internet Security pre-installed. I have never turned Norton off, and assumed it was doing its job monitoring downloads and attachments as advertised.
My question is this: Why doesn't NIS catch MIXED either as an attachment or download? If not then, why not when I ran a Full System Scan? Furthermore, when I search Google it finds 230,000 hits, but NIS's site search has no hits!
Another question: What am I missing here? I extended my license because I thought Norton was protecting my back. But now I find they are letting stuff slip through. Does NIS do only viruses, but not malware? What else isn't covered?
Let me know what to expect so I can plan accordingly.
