Strange ftp site appeared on 'My network'

  Brucemac 22:44 02 Feb 2004

Not long ago I set up a home network. Have just got a new PC and was adding when, on an existing PC it seemed I was connected to click here, clicked on it, there seemed to be some domestic photos (Auntie Flo, the dog, a cat etc), then another file directory with exe files in it like backdoor. Deleted in panic what is going on?

Not sure whats going on , that address is listed as being in Kazakstan ! maybe thats where you are ?

Would suggest that you scan your setup for Trojan horses and viruses .

The files you saw look like they were for Kaspersky anti virus .

as you say it is an ftp site. It has programmes and illegal cracks

I am located just north of sleepy Buxton in the UK. I did once exchange emails with someone in Kazakstan as part of ligitimate business. I also downloaded a computer diagnosticprogram from what sounded like an Eastern European writer. I have run Norton AV2003 (up to date) and it has not located anything, shuld I do anything else ?
