Re: Computer Security for Poker Players (videos)

So what's up with TrueCrypt now? I've been using it for several years ever since I came across this thread, but I don't know enough about computers to know what I should do in response to the news that it's no longer secure or whatever?

Who are you trying to protect your stuff from? There hasn't been any information on live hacks in the wild that can get through TrueCrypt so if you're just concerned about hackers or your sister there isn't much to worry about.

Re: Computer Security for Poker Players (videos)

Not sure if this required its own thread but I was recently infected with a virus, had my Pokerstars account password stolen and all my money lost. Stars security basically said "It was your fault so you're SOL." What I want to know is how did they do it? Was it a key logger? Remote access to my computer? Scanning my pokerstars software to get my password (I had "remember password" on)? What other software should I be worried about?

Stars security said that my account was accessed from a computer from Russia and they said it was likely a key logger. However, I never typed in my password since I always used the "remember password" function. Admittedly it was a very weak password but they said that the person logged in with no wrong attempts so they knew exactly what it was. I have no other poker software on my comp now, but I had full tilt installed and also used "remember password" with that. And even after uninstalling and reinstalling it still saves your preferences so I'm assuming my password is still saved on my computer. Should I be worried about that?

I already changed my gmail password from a different computer and it doesn't look like that was broken into and since the virus, I haven't logged into anything on this computer except for 2+2 now. I also ran the following virus scans:

windows defender
avast 2x
super anti spyware 2x
ccleaner 2x
malwarebytes anti-malware 2x
avg 2x (2x means i ran it twice)

With Avast, I ran it once, it found nothing suspicious, then the 2nd time I ran it, it found something called "UBS.Bicololo" so I'm assuming that was the virus. No other scans found anything. Should I be worried that a virus might still be on my computer and not log into anything sensitive?

I realized that this thread is pretty dead so I reposted the above in its own thread.

Re: Computer Security for Poker Players (videos)

The information is valid for any flavour of Windows, but it is too early for anything specifically related to Win 10, imo.

Re: Computer Security for Poker Players (videos)

AVG 2015 stopped working today and keeps failing on re install. Can anyone recommend any free antiv virus software? Thanks

This is the screenshot of the problem I get with AVG:

Re: Computer Security for Poker Players (videos)

The theory is probably still sound but all of the links and applications are 7 years old and should be verified to still be useful.
