View Full Version : Sockets de trois

Can anyone tell me anything about "Sockets de Trois"? Every time that I am online, Norton pops up a fireweall window to report an attempted intrusion by "Socvkets de Trois". Fortunately I'm able to reject it, but I just wonder what it does if it manages to invade a computer.

It's a trjoan, read about it here (http://www.ircstorm.net/joinus/sockdetr.html)

Oh and if you are wondering whether you have it, then you probably don't. It is just an infected machine, or someone looking for an "open" PC probing the Internet so it can replicate.

Thanks Pheonix, that's very much what I thought. Nah, I don't have it, Norton works very well and Gibson Research tells me that I have no ports open to intrusion - that I'm in stealth mode....
