Hi Everyone,
Dont know if this is the appropiate place but here goes:
AOL IM has a problem with someone use it to access PCS. An unknown person will IM you and when you answer they can access your PC. I set mine to contact by only buddies on buddy list. AOL is suppose to be investigating this. Im also not sure if it just affects AOL internet customers or them and AIM program customers.

TW I think you know this .... but for others looking......


My understanding & I may be wrong... for someone to be able to gain access to your computer they need to have a trojan in place on your system. I fthis is true you need to go to housecall & scan for virus, worms & trojans to make sure they have nothing to let them in.

then you need to get zone alarm firewall
