    Hi,
    as I learned the parasites install a proxy server in the IE or Netscape browser. Is there anything we can do to stop that proxys? Or can we tell our customers to stop proxy in IE settings?

    I found that concerning proxys:

    What is it?

    A scanner is a software made to detect which ports are open on your machine. The proxyscanner does a bit more than a simple scanner, since it tries to use a few ports on your machine to connect to another machine.
    How can this be? ... Those ports have been opened by services, in our case proxy servers. Those proxy servers, which are normally used to speed up your surf on the web, have no protection and allows not only you or your local network users to connect through it, but the whole planet!

    ================================================

    Do the customers like this? Proxys open any firewall.
