Yup. Me too. I had just logged on to read a new PM. The trojan started to download. I got my computer clean again, but I am afraid to go back on the 914 Club until things are fixed.

I wasn't talking about the x-19 guys, I was talking about the guys that hijacked our router last time.

Torpig is rare, and hateful.

Our network was taken by someone who used Torpig to gain access, and if they hadn't acted like little pricks, I never would have found it until next reinstall, and I wouldn't have had to rearrange their furniture.

HaXors with open roots... got to love it man!

If it's the one you are sending these messages with, it's at risk.
