Out at Whitnash today and it would appear that Sky are actually sending out letters warning about spam to there customers, But unfortunately they are basing the information on the reported ip address which changes if the user has unplugged the power to the router, as it happens on this computer the customer has unplugged the router on a regular basis.
We checked the customers machine and did find and remove rootkit virus , this is a virus that attaches it’s self to a main system file and can be pretty hard to find, also we have to change the password on the customers hotmail account it would seem the password had been stolen some how.
