I have a problem that I can't find any answers to and need some help please.
About a week ago I recieved a PM from a forum member that I also am a member of and two days later the same members name appeared in the dropdown list of users on the logon page of the forum.
I scanned my computer with AVG, Avira, Kaspersky online, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, NoAdware but none of them found anything.
In a further conversation via email with the member mentioned above he told me that another member who is personally known to him has, to show off, sent him a PM which contained a "dark spot". Upon clicking on this "spot" his AV came up with a virus warning. He was then told by this person that he was having a conversation on MSN and whom he was having a conversation with.
My questions are:
Is it possible that my pc was infected by the person who sent me a PM although there wasn't a "dark spot" or any other images in the PM?
Is it possible to have a virus or a trojan that is "hidden" from AV/adware/malware programs?
Can anyone help please?
Thanks in advance.
