First heard about this today from one of our new programmers - a real
security guy - I think you two would have lots to talk about!
Seems that some sites on the web will install software and cookies on your
machine to allow it to mine your machine when the pc is connected to the
internet - even to monitoring key strokes.
The ad-aware software (free) will detect and remove the software. I'm now
trying it out. Seems that bug detection code will not detect these
potential trojan horses.
