Please do what Jacob said - that is his approach. I have nothing against it. Probably worth trying
… but while Jacob posted I was preparing this reply , so you may be interested:
======= here we go
Not sure how that happened but attached image shows 2 pages of search using “keyboard” as a keyword. Try going to the home page of a forum and search again
Yes I know what is USB keyboard & I’m using one on my laptop as well.
Then as pointed sometimes laptop’s keyboard and mouse pad can misbehave
That happens to many users. After one of MS updates mine stopped working properly as well (flickering; cursor was moving like crazy in any edit box, etc.) All you have to do in most cases – go to the laptop vendor site & download/reinstall respective updated drivers.
Current lack of experience in investigation procedure is not a problem – you’ll get one if you have will to learn. And the that’s why I posted one of possible steps (submitting) if you are suspecting particular Software.
Note: Add as much info about your system as a matter of fact: OS Service Pack, platform (32bit or x64); main Security; additional security if any… and so on
As for the answers from people who provide you security – that was my other point – as I can see it that is not a security issue. But if it is – there is a procedure here , which describes how to file a report in case you think that you security is failing to protect you or having a bug.
well that’s fine and that’s why I asked. Thanks for answering. But the essence of my message was: please test any other chat room yourself using you laptop keyboard.
Sure any decent malware writer can attack that or the whole keyboard. That can be written in 10 min. What is the point unless the attacker is a simple “amateur learning newbie” in the 1st place?
That would be identified practically by any security … no questions about Defense+ or decent Behavioral Blocker
Who would do that instead of trying to install a sophisticated keylogger, for example?
Then, simple hardware issue (including incorrect driver) can be easily mixed with malware having similar symptoms
What I’m trying to convey - I still believe (according to the description provided by you) that the issue is on a server site/ Yahoo chat only at the moment
Have you contacted Yahoo admins, as it was asked above?
Finally, you may or you may not believe to what I’m saying – That’s fine & in addition we all can be wrong sometimes.
Therefore, if you still think that it’s a malware on your and other Yahoo Chat users computers – important!!! but not a bug or malicious probe on a server site please consider posting and addressing/investigating the issue properly
There are several respective sites where you can join / post a description of an issue/ and follow the instructions by certified malware fighter professional, who will gather needed info about you computer in particular and then lead you through the process if any suspects found “locally” so to speak
If you are ready to do that - just let us know & we can post links to such sites, otherwise you will be in the dark as long as you want
