Hello everyone Very Happy ,

I am informing this forum of a nasty spyware application called Farsight. And the reason that I feel compelled to talk about this particular malware is because it has the ability to embed itself into one of your system files and run a streaming real-time feed of what you are doing on your desktop onto a remote computer while still being rather inconspicuous to AV scans . I happened to find Farsight embedded within the components of my video card. Further, Farsight may not be limited to just embedding itself in just your video card components, but just about anywhere where it would make itself appear a part of some legitimate software.

All I can say is make sure to keep your AV applications up to date and run them often.


Best Regards,

Recon Man Wink
