Botnets Can Trample Most Anti-Virus Programs
« on: November 29, 2008, 08:59:36 PM »
A new analysis of botnets has come up with a possible reason for their prodigious ability to infect PCs -- many anti-virus programs are near to useless in blocking the binaries used to spread them

Yes, thanks for the warning marc57 I always knew botnets were harder to detect from research and reading but this is some new news about it.

and Samulelvirucide I would have to dispute that and say that Iron Maiden rules the metal world  ;) at least that's my favorite band ever  :)

I always thought that Michael Jackson did a pretty good job of getting rid of himself.
He didn't need any help from any one else.  ;D ;D ;D

I agree with Bob ... MJ needed no help from others to kill his career.

Gotta agree, They were the first metal band I heard (Masters of Reality). I'm still an Ozzy fan.

I also agree with Bob.

Hehe from botnets to Heavy Metal ...  ;D

Going back to bots i picked up a small free bot detector on my travels around the internet called trend micro rebutted from trend micro.It is supposed to detect bots but cannot get rid of them.But at least if you know they are there you can allways find out how to get rid.Back to heavy metal what about Motor head or Whitesnake. ;D.
