Malware paranoia

I woke up this morning and found my laptop not in sleep mode (if I go to bed without turning it off it’ll eventually go into sleep mode). The thing that I found a bit worrisome is that my Kaspersky anti-virus app’s virtual keyboard was up.

Normally I’m very careful of the sites I visit although recently I have clicked on potential phishing sites because they were sent to me by friends who had their emails or twitter accounts hacked into. Luckily I use Firefox (which has built-in phishing and malware site detection) and NoScript.

Should I be worried about a possible keylogger or other type of malware? I’m doing a full scan of my laptop right now.

Hey Eric, check out what I told you in IRC.
