About 6 days ago my parents who aren't great with PCs got phished on gmail, and the account started spreading spam.
It had been hacked on an Argentinian IP, and then logged in from IMAP and SMTP from the UK. At the moment it was logged in from the UK, it sent spam out on the gmail contacts briefly.
We changed the password and added 2 step verification. The account has not had any attempted log ins since, and no suspicious activity.
However, since I probably have crazy anxiety problems, I am scared that malware or a virus could have gotten into the machine, however I see no signs.
• I checked msconfig for bad entries
• I scanned with MSE, Mbam, Mbam Anti rookit, Tdsskiller, Spybot, norton 360, kaspersky pure 3.0, norton pe, and it has all come clean, all on full scans.
• I dont see any suspicious activity network wise. (Kaspersky shows 34 ports listening for svchost, 11 for system, is that normal?)
• Nothing seems to be changed, and the pc runs fine.
One of my main reasons I'm worried, is that I believe my own pc was running and connected to the network when my parents got on the phishing link. And the next day it was running and connected, and my parents PC was on too.
I haven't turned my PC on since, and I have been stressing and scanning for Long time now on my parents PC.
I was even thinking about going around with my win7 install disk and formatting all the PCs..
Can anyone shed some light on this? What's the possibility my parents PC got infected? And could it have spread to other PCs?
If it helps, my situation is similar to this Don't understand how my mum's Gmail account was hacked
