Worried about identity theft.

Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure where to put this, but anyways, a few weeks ago I got malware on my computer, it seemed really bad, I used Spybot to remove it, then it kept appearing again after another scan, the virus was disabling my firewall and everything. I got recommended malwarebytes and after I scanned with it my computer finally stopped acting up.

I have heard about people's lives being ruined by identity theft so this has me very worried. Is this a possibility? What kind of information does this sorta thing usually steal? I have a paypal account, bank account, ebay account, some online store accounts, etc. I changed my passwords to all of them once I removed it. Is there a possibility of someone using information like my name or something to buy things when I don't even know about it? I really have no idea about any of this stuff. I'll post my malwarebytes log. Here it is:

Hi again -

The simple answer is yes - This may have already been done with these infections / intrusions - -

Above I have listed a quick detail from Kaspersky Labs that show lowsec\local.ds (Stolen.data) is a threat -

The usual thing to do is reset your passwords as soon as you can to protect yourself - That is why we want to remove these infections -

Without knowing how long they have been on your system , you are the one taking the chances -

All the services we provide are free and are handled only by trained experts -

You may note that Kaspersky fully identifies it ad a Trojan-SPY -

Thank You -


Do you use a decent Firewall and Anti Virus program ?? These 2 items are 100% required at all times -

At the very least do a Full Scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and if any item is still there then you are still badly infected -

Thanks for your help, I use AVG Free edition and the firewall that comes with Windows XP. I think I'll take my computer to a professional to get it cleaned. I could also do this right?

Then I change my passwords again?

But what else do I do? I heard you are supposed to contact the bank and everything, was the threat so serious that I have to contact credit card companies, contact my bank, etc. What all do I have to do in this situation?
