I was wondering if some of the knowledgeable folks here could give me a little information. I recently signed onto my AOL account only to find several names in my buddy list I did not place there. I also started receiving IMs from people I did not know, who would not respond to me when I tried to learn who they were. Needless to say, this sent up a red flag.
I used Adaware to scan my system the next day, and it told me I had contracted something known as win32.trojanspy.wildtangent. I have since reformatted my computer.
I searched out information on this particular piece of malware, but everything I've found so far has been very general. Can someone please tell me exactly what win32.trojanspy.wildtangent does, and if this is the likely culprit for my AOL issue? I would greatly appreciate the information!
