Security forums

Hi all,

My suggestion, is it's very important for everybody: PC security. Virusses, spyware, trojans and ofcourse the thing that WoW players hate most: keyloggers.

As you know (I hope!) I got the guide: How to CLEAN your PC from keyloggers here and on the WoW EU Forums (sticky) here.

I'd like to see a Security forum, where this guide is also listed, and where I can help people that each can make a separate topic with their Hijackthis log, that I can check. This way I can help people making sure their PC is still safe, and if they got hacked, make it safe again.

Many thanks,

- Magekíd

It should be noted that some Keyloggers and Trojans can become so deeply embedded into your registry files that the only way to remove them is through wiping your hard disk. Always keep an off-site disk that contains a full, non-infected backup of your computer system. A good place to keep this disk is a fireproof safe or a lockbox at your local bank.

Nonsense, I've yet to face a virus/keylogger that could not be removed Smiling - The only exception would be virusses that keep your files "hostage"- and encrypt the files.

On the other hand, it's indeed good to keep a good up-to-date backup file of your files Smiling
