[Geek] Whoops...

This is not the entry I wanted to be making. This morning, I downloaded a program from a dodgy source as part of my job. Unfortunately I wasn't really awake and ran an 'update.exe' program contained within the zip file on my laptop. Nothing popped up. Hmm. I checked the process list but nothing was showing. I scanned the file with the company standard virus scanner, but it was reported clean. Five minutes later I got a call from IS asking me to disconnect my computer from the network and bring it to them for re-imaging. It appears I was 0wned by a r00tkit. Whoops...
