Another day, another malware infection defeated
As this is my second blog, I have to wonder what my angle is. I realize that there are millions of blogs so why would anybody read mine? It isnt like it has the mass appeal of www.whatwhitepeoplelike.com but I am hoping that it may find it’s way into the hearts of the common computer do-it-yourselfers. After all, I know that I would have loved to know more about what the life of a real bad-code counter-puncher was like. I hope there will be some information that is helpful to the world. Eventually I will find a better, more interesting angle but for now I will just write about what happens.
Today I went to Boston Pizza Company to deal with a surveillance DVR with my friend John Vaughan, owner of www.everyanglelp.com. It was a quick appointment. The owner complained about not being able to remotely view his surviellance cameras. So I opened up a command prompt and pinged the dvr with a laptop. Strangely enough I kept receiving a “hardware error” message intermittently. I had never seen this message via a ping command but upon physical inspection of the modem/router, it saw that it was completely unstable and the lights were blinking wildly. So it was a bad unit. End of story.
My next appointment had me doing battle with the burrito.exe virus. I eradicated it and that was that. The cool thing was that my appointment was on my client’s boat. And a gigantic boat it was. Anyway, I have been using the SuperAntispyware program located at www.superantispyware.com and I think that it is a great little program. You cant beat the free version. I think it is better than spybot search and destroy.
