    Malware Information

    Can anyone tell me anything about a type of malware that hijacks random processes (I can tell because when I close the process that is taking up 50+% of the CPU, about 5 seconds later, another process at total random choice starts eating CPU cycles) and tries to download more malware through them? Currently taking over my computer; good thing I have Linux :B

    Run clam or something (on Linux) to find out what it is and get rid of it. In general it is easier to find out what xyz is and how it's classified when it has a name.

    Also security starts with the user, don't depend on any OS to keep you safe from malware or spreading it.

    Agreed. I more just mean that it's great I have another operating system so I don't ruin Windows any more than it is now by allowing the malware to persist.
