    Personally i would fork out some money and buy either Nod 32 or Kaspersky the 2 best AVs on the market

    Like you said you account has been hacked would you rather be protected good or protected excellent?

    Spybot might be worth using too, regularly noticed updates for detecting keyloggers. Using just 1 AV program is not enough really. Best have at least 2 anti spyware/malware programs aswell as the AV program. Some programs detect what others miss.

    as the poster below you says one AV is not enough.

    i had KASPERSKY and still got a keygen that stole my wow login.

    i know how i got the keygen and it was downloaded via a flash exploit that adobe fixed without me knowing about it until after the time.

    malwarebytes found the keygen easy and its free.

    spybot is also good at finding things most AV miss

    well anti virus itself is only intended to find and destroy virus/worms/ trojans...keyloggers is more spyware.


    just a spot of bad luck I hope you find the nasty than nuke it from orbit

    kerpersky (internet security, and PURE) will have defence against spy ware (mostly or I would hope so) but since its risky using a credit card on that machine than your best of with spy bot or something

    A anti virus is not enough, for the most basic trangle you need a firewall, application control, and a anti virus min. Or a good internet security package

    What was the name of the flash exploit / keygen? Which browser / OS were you using?

    it was months ago there was an exploit in flash where any flash image could potentially download a file onto your computer that would then execute itself via a .bat


    some of the wow addon sites alowed flash signatures in the comments so a bunch of the most popular addons had flash objects in the comments that contained a keygen

    Wow. ( pardon the pun :p )

    I probably wouldn't have been affected because the Software Restriction Policy that I have in place only allows execution from "\Windows" "\Program Files" and as a Standard User, Firefox ( and its plugins ) should have no write access to either of those directories.

    Or would they? I'm not very conversant with the interaction that Adobe's products have with the rest of the system.

    These browser based exploits are quite interesting. You can do everything right with your defensive layers, but still fall at the last hurdle.

    Kaspersky is the best I'd say.
    The problem is, when a virus or malware is made, if it's made well, it's not detected by antiviruses, so you can download something and it could be a virus but not detected by any antivirus for weeks. You just need to be careful of what you download.

    you could try running your browser in a sandbox ie sandboxie, or most firewalls security suites have a sandbox facility.

    Im not sure how effective they are???

    Keylogger and keygen are entirely different things, just for future reference. :)

    I was wondering why people said key gen... unless you meant a rogue keygen which happens to have a keylogger, in which case it would be more a trojan

    Yer Sandboxes are a very effective form of security, especially in the context of browsers :) However, your browser could still be compromised while in memory, for example send your credit card numbers to the bad guys. This is basically a non-persistent browser rootkit.

    Of course this depends on how many levels you sandbox on, if you ran flash inside a sandbox then that would be very effective but also restrictive. If you just run your browser as a whole in a sandbox, it protects your box but not the browser. Chrome does a very good job of sandboxing different levels of the browser, and I think im right in saying a flash exploit in Chrome would be very well contained.
