    Hello SD,

    thanks for your replys. I'm a bit confused now because your two psots are so complete contrary. Of course I will again change my passwords and look after my credit cards but are you really sure that my pc is safe now? Maybe I should do a re-format?
    And can you explain me where the trojans found my credit card information? somewhere in the browser? although I used ccleaner quiet regularly? I really would like to know better how i can avoid that it happens again.

    Thanx,
    Daniela

    Hello saxophon. As soon as I saw the information about a backdoor trojan in your ESET scan I issued the warning. Afterwards, I spoke to my mentor and he assures me that your computer is safe. Having a good firewall that blocks out-going traffic is one major way of stopping information from your computer getting out. Is it possible that someone was able to steal the information from you credit card in the real world.(outside of your computer.) This article will help explain how they work at stealing information.
