      Not clearly stated in the thread, but from what I gather someway up the corporate ladder in finance department or somehow fixing deals with other entities?! There was some talk of revenge and a possible suspect coming to mind from the OP.

       

      When I first read his post, I thought his was fake or simply retarded, cause this kind of attack reeks of 3-letter-agencies or big corporation. That's nothing a bored IT student in eastern europe or china would simply let out into the wild to have some fun or earn a few $.

      That stuff is also way outside of my knwoledge. Brain.exe and and free AV solotions have kept me safe for the most part. I had 2-4 infections in the past and except one time I could handle that with the usual AV solutions and an USB-stick/CDROM.

      But that one time I had to search the net for a specialist forum (in german), cause that sucker kept popping up again and again. Took a few days to nail it down.
