I have been receiving warnings from my internet provider for a month now. This is part of the latest e-mail sent to me.
"CenturyLink Security Services has received notification about malicious traffic originating from this account. This means that this computer or another computer on your network is trying to infect, attack, or gain unauthorized access to other computers on the Internet.
This malicious traffic has been determined to be an instance of the "Mebroot" or "Torpig" virus.
Computers infected with bots are considered compromised hosts. They may be used to send spam (also called Unsolicited Bulk Email, or UBE), scan other computers for vulnerabilities, take advantage of security holes, and/or be used as part of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. These programs also allow computers used by attackers or spammers to hide their identity and location. These bots are often spread by viruses or worms."
I have changed the password 6 times. I even went to my mac store only to have them tell me that what CenturyLink says is impossible. This morning I ran a first aid "verify permissions" and found the following on my "Fugi... and HD options
Warning: SUID file "usr/sbin/vpnd" has been modified and will not be repaired.
ACL found but not expected on "Applications/Utilities".
I am at my wit's end on this matter. Is there anything I can do to fix the problem?
