Ammyy Scam

    My brother almost fell for the Ammyy Scam. He installed to program, but we quickly closed it right before remote access. Soon after, we ran a factory reformat from cd on the computer in hopes to remove the malware.

    My concerns are:
    1. Will factory reformat remove the malware that was installed
    2. Are any other computers that were connected to the internet through the same router also affected by the scam

    I know this has been asked several times in the forum, but my concern is a little bit specific

    A factory reinstall should have removed all traces of the malware. You should be fine. ;)

    How about the other computers, are they safe?
    I have scanned them with Norton several times, and they always come clean. Is there a chance for them to be infected?

    I doubt they were infected. ;)
