    Hi there. I do not know whether this is the place for me to ask this question but anyway.. here is my questions.
    SEMrush
    I own a image hosting site and i've found someone uploading a few quite large txt files. I tried to open them on my school library computer and i got a virus notice. But when i tried that at my house no virus notification from my anti virus.

    Please help me to determine if these are trojon or anything? and is there anyway to keep my com clean after opening it??

    Its a virus that install itself through activex (i tried downloading it, it's good i am using a linux) try deleting the files and limiting the uploads to the image files extension. Also add a script that recognize the file types through the reading of the image signatures.

    Another thing is you have to update your antivirus at home and try changing all your passwords.

    Hope it helps
