Hi, I run Windows XP SP2, with all Windows update updated. I also have Trend Micro PC-cillin IS 2005. Today a firewall message popped up that was reporting some outbound connection being made. It was asking whether or not I would allow it. In my firewall log, the information reads as this:
Type: Exception List Rule
Source IP Address: DL
Source Port: 4377
Application Path: C:\PROGRAM FILES\JAVA\JRE1.5.0_02\BIN\JAVAW.EXE
Application Description: Java(TM)2 Platform Standard Edition binary
Description: Send Mail for mass mail (SMTP)
I never clicked on any 'allow' or 'deny' button on the firewall window popup, yet all of a sudden it disappeared and when I went into the firewall connection exception list, it was listed as an exception (ie. it was allowed). I don't recall hitting an the keyboard 'enter' button either. Do you think there could be some virus or something or my computer? I'm currently running TM Housecall as opposed to my own virus scanner. I ran Spybot, and it only detected some tracking cookies, which I deleted, and then some other things came up like DSO Exploit, Wild Tangent, and Download Accelerator Plus Ads. I'm currently up to date with Windows Update. After Housecall I think I may try 1 or 2 other online virus scanners.
However, can anyone suggest any other possible checks I can perform to make sure there are no things like trojans, or that my comp. hasn't been hijacked or somehting?
