Beware of an American Software company, called Enigma!!!!!
They produce a piece of software called SpyHunter. The demo version is free, this just scans your hard drive for any bad spy programmes that are there inc. cookies. The thing is it comes up with LOADS (some of which we found out last night are either not there or put there by the software!) Anyway to remove it, you need to purchase the software (scared by the amount of stuff there, we did) priced $29.99. You get free support and updates, and it all sounds good and you feel that little bit safer surfing.
Problem is, after 3 months, our username and password is no longer recognised, so we couldn't get updates. We contacted them and contacted them, but no reply. At first we assumed the company had gone bust! But last night, whilst generally searching, we realised there was something not quite right, and realised we had been conned.
NOT ONLY HAD WE PAID FOR A PIECE OF NOW REDUNDANT SOFTWARE, BUT NOW WE REALISED THEY WERE THE ONES SPYING!!

Someone had managed to bypass our firewall using this software, we thought we could trust, and had access to our computer. We can only assume it is the programme makers! Worst of all though whoever hacked in set up their own connection, and we don't know how often it was used, and how much that will have cost our phone bill!!

So please, everyone,
DO NOT PURCHASE THIS SOFTWARE!! oh yes, they did a scam before with another company and software name apparently!

And if anyone knows any hackers, get them to bring down the f*%@s!!

Oooh ...a friend of mine felt like pissing about with me and sent me this file which I opened.

My computer started doing some crazy **** a few days later, I'd just broke up with my bf of like ages and was really cut up. He was really good at techy stuff so I assumed it was him.
The printer printed things saying "I LOVE YOU AND I WANT YOU BACK, WHY WON'T YOU ANSWER THE PHONE" posting porn and stuff on my computer.

I got totally confused and shut down the computer and then found out in IT the next day it was my mate Ross pissing about. I was none too amused. They can access paedo-porn and YOU get the blame for it!
