Recently I've been having troubles with Spyware and web browser hijackings. I have Spybot, but I still get hijacked with spyware.

Over the last few days, I've been randomly getting an Ebay Sell Your Item Page that pops up. I know that Ebay probably would not be doing anything with spyware. They really don't have to as they have a lot of users.

Anyway, here is the link of the Spyware version: http://signin.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?SignIn&UsingSSL=0&pUserId=&co_partnerId=2&siteid=0&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi5.ebay.com%3A80%2Fws2%2FeBayISA PI.dll%3FSellItem%26sspagename%3Dh% 253Ah%253Asyi%253AUS&pageType=1144

Here is the link taken from Ebay: http://signin.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?SignIn&UsingSSL=0&pUserId=&co_partnerId=2&siteid=0&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi5.ebay.com%3A80%2Fws1%2FeBayISA PI.dll%3FSellYourItemSignIn%26pass% 3D%7B_pass_%7D%26userid%3D&pageType=1144

The Spyware version looks just like Ebay's version. I cannot guarantee that it is not an authentic "Sell Your Item Sign-In Page", but I would not trust it.

Note: That when I disinfect my PC, Ebay does not show up as a problem.

I don't know why I it is not showing up. I've just copied and pasted the link and it wont show up... anybody know why?

Hmmm try this http://secunia.com/MS03-032/
It is a security test.

You aren't using IE or MSN browser are you?

Try Mozilla (http://www.mozilla.org) instead. I've noticed IE & MSN browser just absorb spyware like a sponge when online.

This board can't do URLs that are that long...

You'll just have to cut and paste the link to your browser window.
