unauthorized dialing from your computer

i have heard a lot about this happening in the media lately, does anyone know anything about it, and is there any way to stop it, does it matter if you are using dial up or broadband.

Hi jeff i received an email from BT today warning
about this,
it seems it is not a problem for BB users,
which i will be using myself in a fortnight, thank heavens, as for stopping it well there must be a number of programs around that will get rid, but not sure about stopping them, i will have a google and see what i can find.
Regards Mammak.

This will warn you click here

The site is in German, but there is an option to install in English. It will warn you if your machine tries to dial any other than authorised numbers
