anyone heard of?
« on: June 04, 2006, 04:10:04 PM »

hi, looks like I could be the first in the security forum?
I've "migrated" from vnu so here goes:
I did a hijack this scan, and came across some files.  Most I googled, but could not find out about the following:
(1) apoint\apntex.exe (the only ref on google was to a link in a language I don't speak!
(2) hklm\system\ccs\services\tcpip, then a long number in brackets, then name server 212.159.13.149 (no joy on google).
Any help appreciated.

many thanks for your reply Kitz, this puts my mind at rest.  Though I don't know why I didn't have better luck on Google, but mostly it's very good.
