Default Also vulnerable due to bill pay hack

I too received notification from my credit union that my computer was one of the ones that was compromised as I utilized their "bill payment partner". They offered me McAfee free for a year and some kind of identity protection free for two years. I installed McAfee and it bogged my computer down so bad I removed it. I now have Spyware Doctor. It found a thing or two initially and quarantined them. I viewed the quarantined area and asked it to remove them. Today, related or not, I don't know, I have a new problem. I have this Antivirus 2010 annoyance that uses windows security center to drive me out of my mind. It tells me my computer is vulnerable, that I have 41 infections and does all kinds of crazy stuff. Can you help me get rid of this antivirus 2010? I have read about antivirus 2008/2009, but I don't see anything about this seemingly new version. Thanks!

Default Re: Also vulnerable due to bill pay hack

Ok, update. Tim, my bill pay is a partner site of my credit union. I did not directly sign up for or go to my free check. I just went to my usual banking site, clicked my usual link for bill payment and was redirected. I THINK I'm clear now. I have logs from Malwarebytes anti malware program showing the infection and showing that I'm clear. I hope this has done the trick.

Default Re: Also vulnerable due to bill pay hack

Here is an excerpt from the email I received from my credit union.

On Tuesday December 2, 2008, some members attempting to access CheckFree Bill Pay (the Bill Payment service within Easy Link online banking) between 12:40 A.M. and 10:10 A.M. Eastern Time were redirected to an unauthorized website not controlled by CheckFree,

I suppose as a result of this, the credit union has announced a major upgrade to the bill pay system - ya think??

Thanks to all who helped and suggested.....stay close.....it may come back.

By the way, the malicious software removal tool wouldn't touch it.

You'll need to start a new thread in the Malware Forum to take this further. This is really just a welcome forum

There is no point. The first things they would have you do is post the logs that came out of the Read and Run Me First link that was posted by Kestrel in Post #2 of this thread. Best for you to start a new thread and post up those logs now in it

I received the same letter by email and a letter was sent to my home. I ignore it because it was very vague. It sounded very phishy to me. After all, I run ultilities left and right on my system.
