Hey everyone,

A quick followup on yesterday's Bugbear.C virus post. Forgot to mention that Bugbear.C has another wicked twist.

Bugbear.C installs a keylogger-type Trojan on the affected computer, stealing information from the machine and sending it to the virus author. Avoid getting infected at all costs, particularly if you use a credit card online or do your taxes on your PC.

If you think you might be infected, go here for info on how to get a free online virus scan: Free Virus Scan.

This page has info on how to lock down Internet Explorer against malware and website hijacks:
