I know one of our guildies was hacked a while ago. I'm not sure if they ever got their stuff...Personally, I would backtrack your steps and see where you might have run into a virus/key logger. MySpace? Facebook? Maybe even a sneaky add here on the Webblog Inc. network.Also possible that it was just a blind script kiddie's virus scanning a bunch of computers and installing the KeyLogger.I wonder if these keyloggers/viruses are being ignored by the Anti-Virus vendors since they effect a relatively small portion of the web.

As a side note, I've been tempted to play the password-rotation game. So that in the off chance I do get a KeyLogger, I may have rotated to a new password by then.

Myspace/Facebook are very possibly where these came from, however they could have come from anywhere. Most of these hide in ads and auto-install if using IE on the default settings as most people do. To protect myself I make sure to keep my hardware and software firewalls properly configured, keep my updates current on all software, and run Firefox with Adblock (pretty aggressively configured).
