keylogger - should I panic?

  powertool 10:42 16 Jan 2005

My AOL Spyware has just found a keylogger, but since I ran it I have made about 6 credit card transactions. My firewall hasn't alerted my to any programmes trying to access the internet?

Should I cancel my card? Would that be an over-reaction?

Your help,as always, much appreciated.

sorry - that should read;

"since I last ran it"

Can you verify the findings with another source?
another spyware app,and see if this gives the same results,what was the logger called?,it might be a good idea to check your card balance/statment,i dont know about canceling it though others may have more info.

If the keylooger is SpyBuddy, it's a false positive. If it is that one, just ignore it and AOL will probably sort it out in a future update.

Hi powertool, did you ever get to the bottom of the problem?I have just found a keylogger on my AOL scan,none of the others ie Ad ware ,spyware doc or microsoft antispy detected it

Hi Kdt, I sould not worry to much i deleted spyware then run AOL again with a negative result,i think one type of protection is detecting the other.
