Here There Be (Monsters) Trojans
by Marianna Schmudlach / August 22, 2007 8:14 AM PDT

August 22nd, 2007 by Trend Micro

Job seekers are likely to be familiar with monster.com, a popular job search and online recruitment web site that is the second largest job search engine in the US, with roughly 42 million job seekers per month posting their resumes on the website?that?s about 42 million people willingly providing their contact details and additional personal information to be reviewed by potential employers.
Of course there?s nothing wrong with this picture but then again a Trojan-assisted security breach happens and then you have big problems on your hands.


Recently, a new information-stealing Trojan has turned up, this time targeting monster.com subscribers. This new Trojan apparently logs in to monster.com using a compromised account that is meant for employers who want to review resumes. Once it has gained access, the Trojan harvests the information contained within monster.com resume database, siphoning off names, home and mobile phone numbers, home addresses and email addresses into a remote server (http: //195.189.246.233/mnstr/). The remote server contains a file counter.txt which lists the number of compromised resume entries.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
