RE: Off topic - But important

Believe or not, I have seen *machines* on which that open pop-up screens
when connecting to google. I said *machines* because my machine does not
open such pop-up. However, on two of my colleague machines, this happens
time to time. You can also search google groups for "spyware google" , you
can see how many people have questions about google in mind.

Be extremely careful of accusations. I highly doubt they are from the
google.com site. Google does not allow popup ads.

We have seen some spyware programs and/or trojan viruses coming from google
search site via pop-up ad screens. 

So far, I have detected 3 files; syslog.exe, OWMng.exe and tpss.exe.

 

Please check your task manager to see anyone of these running. If so, then
check your registry, and use netstat command to check which of these
listening on what port?

 

I strongly suspect that these come from google search site, if correct what
does google try to? Any idea?
