XP Smart Security/XP Defender Pro trojans

  1. Be very suspicious of any tasks appearing to be windows security programs that you did not install. I just downloaded 2 trojans masquerading as windows security programs. They appear in the systray as the normal windows security shield icon. They are named XP Smart Security and XP Defender Pro. I did a system restore to ensure that they are quarantined.

    Here are some links on the trojans ...

    Never ever freaking download something you're unsure about, no wonder people here are losing money!
