    Unhappy Trojan?

    My CD-Rom drive has been popping out randomly recently, and sometimes my mouse becomes relatively unresponsive (wobbles from side to side when trying to move it) So I quickly diagnosed it as a trojan, and hit the standby button on my cable modem. After running a complete scan with AVG, and changing my firewall from cygate to zonealarm I found absolutely nothing. I blocked some incoming packets on port 1640 1641 1639 afterwards all from the same source ip.

    I don't know what this could be

    Ah I got the $$$$$, it was optix pro. Don't know how much of my personal data, ie credit card $$$$, passwords etc was stolen yet. This appears to be quite a nasty guy. If you think you could have this, I highly recommend you go here http://scan.sygate.com/trojanscan.html and get your ports probed remotely, because optix disables many firewalls/virus scanners with scary effectiveness.

    sounds like a trojan to me. i used to be into that, just to mess w/peoples computers, opening cdrom's, resetting desktop backgrounds w/adult entertainment ...ya know, normal teenager stuff...the thing is, a trojan could be running from any hidden dll or exe on your computer. i'd disconnect and go through every .exe or .dll created or modified in the last week

    if you know any cops, they might be able to help you find the ass hole who screwed you

    Yeah. I found and got rid of the trojan (i hope) with a very up to date trojan-specific scanner. I'm just hoping he didn't bother with the keystroke logging. But it didnt give me much information about the trojan which sucks, because I was gonna root through it for IP addresses and such.

    You have blocked all of our probes! We still recommend running this test both with
    and without Sygate Personal Firewall enabled... so turn it off and try the test again.
    If you are not already running our Enterprise Security Agent or our Personal Firewall,
    try our Award-Winning Personal Firewall now. <<

    Why try it with firewall off? Somebody explain!

    Because if you do if a trojan and your firewall does block it, what if your firewall isnt working for a while? you'd be vulnerable and wouldnt know you had a trojan.

    "I second that!"

    Hahaha, Sygate is funny. Port 2003 & 5000 are open! You must have a trojan!

    Anyways, if you are all that paranoid... go get ZoneAlarm, its for free and it does the best job of any FireWall I have ever seen. However, Firewalls arn't really necessary for personal use.
