Spyware

Postby Jose Silva » Thu Oct 30, 2008 6:01 am

Hi everybody. I know someone has acess to my msn account, because that person knows all my contacts and with who i'm chatting. I dont know if it has acess to my chat logs. That someone doesn't has acess to my computer but i know he uses Linux Mint (i use windows xp in that computer).

The spyware is called Onara, or Oxara, or something like that!! Can anyone help me please to maintain my privacy?

If this really is some hack it's done to msn if your computer really is untouched
I think both msn and a computer running XP is likely to be hacked
I searched for Spyware and onara/oxara and the only post I found was you on linux.com
How do you know that person is using Mint?
Do you use Mint yourself? (We'll try to help you anyway)
This is close to impossible to say anything about without a lot of data...

This is not a Mint problem I have discovered.
It's way outside what we can and should help with
