You mentioned there was one problematic file found, so I'm just curious as to if it WAS at least possible or not? My main suspect is a MySpace page I viewed sometime around 1 - 2AM Sat. morning. But if it WAS that page, I'm curious as to why the infection did not show up until sometime around 6 or 7PM Sat. evening.
Like I said, just trying to narrow the possibilities down.
Thanks a lot and I hope everything gets easily resolved for you!
This is not really my area of expertise, but yeah, I suppose it's possible - particularly if your virus updates were out of date, as you mentioned. I'm not positive from your posts, but if it occurred on Saturday, then I'm pretty confident that it did not come from RZ since no one was aware of any related problems until yesterday (Sunday) afternoon; if it occurred yesterday, then it is definitely possible. If the latter, I'm not saying 100% for sure that's what caused the problem, but as best I can tell, it's possible, though I've not heard of anyone else that has been infected by this. Others that are more knowledgeable in this area can probably better assist you, though.
