The Bookies WERE spying on me! They are probably spying on you, too..

You may remember an article about a month ago, relating the Bookies illegal use of a malware called iesnare (or mpsnare) to spy on punters?

Well, I have just re-checked my netbook, and found it lurking deep within the system drive. I have removed it and reconfigured the hosts file so if it gets re-installed it cannot call home.

Now, my day job is in IT, so if I can get infected, then so can you. It doesn’t show up on virus scans or malware scans, you need to know what to look for and how to deal with it.

I suggest you make the changes to the hosts file anyway, so even if it gets installed, it cannot send any info home.

Check out my earlier post, and follow Matt Bisogno’s instructions to remove and block this illegal software.
