I was on google looking for an interesting read, I come across this site that links me to this other site, but then I get norton telling me I got trojan on computer from that original site. It says it can't delete it so i go to norton's website where they have instructions on how to fix it, and it's going to take a bit of a while.
These virus writers are like everywhere!

If anyone was interested though I came across this (I hope you appreciate it) while that virus was downloading on my computer unknowingly *curses norton*

I get trojans downloaded through firefox. They're imbedded in the page somehow. My AV (AVAST) scans everything downloaded so it catches them before they finish downloading half the time. I only get them on somewhat illegitimate sites though.

Wait, Norton AV actually caught a Trojan? every home version I've ever used refuses to acknowledge that Trojans even exist.

Firewalls work great when it comes to trojans. I see crap trying to get into my system all the time in my firewall logs.

proof again that Firefox is really no better than IE once it became a wide enough platform to attack

I experiance almost no spyware and stupid warnings from norton ever since I started to use firefox...of course you are going to still get stuff. Is it better, it is for me, that's all I care about. Is IE better for you? Good.
