Could a Virus Do This?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

VWD 2008 Express.  Visual Basic.

I have a web page on which there is a gridview control.  The gridview contains the grades (in textbox controls in each row of the gridview) for students and allows entries and updates.  The student may eventually end up with 200+ grade records for all the lessons and units in a course.  I have quite a few regular users, and only one reports a recurring problem as follows:

When they have entered some new grades for a student and saved them, they go back later and find that whole blocks of grades that had been entered prior to the last grade entries have been blanked out.  That is, the grade records still remain, but there are no grades in them (the grades are blank).  These textboxes were not necessarily visible on the screen (as the gridview is contained in a panel with scrollbars), but were still populated when the user was entering the other grades.

Has anyone heard of any viruses that blank out textboxes in forms that are displayed on a screen?  I have checked my code and found nothing that would cause the old values to be blanked out.  Moreover, I have other heavy users who do not have this issue.

Virus Hunting: Understand Common Virus Attacks Before They Strike to Better Protect Your Apps


Developer's machines can often be more vulnerable to viruses than the average corporate user because of their more frequent access to remote machines and shares, and the differing administrative privileges they maintain across mutiple machines. Reliance on antivirus software is fine as a first line of defense, but you need a basic arsenal of skills for securing the executables on your system and coping with viruses on your own. This article reviews proactive methods you can use to defend yourself against malicious executable code in resources, component libraries, scripts and macros, as well as how to avoid a handful of other potential vulnerabilities.

Virus Hunting: Track and Report Server Attacks Quickly and Easily with the .NET Networking Classes


To help stop the spread of worms, viruses, and other hostile activity, it is important to track down and report the servers used in these attacks along with those used to send spam. Many Web administrators, however, don't take the time to track them because the manual process can be quite cumbersome. The Microsoft .NET Framework comes to the rescue with several networking classes, including the Dns class and the TcpClient class, that abstract away the complexity of performing DNS and WHOIS lookups. These classes make it easy to create a simple, straightforward ASP.NET-based utility for performing these lookups and automating this very important task.

Which Anti-Virus and Spyware Are Compatible with SQL Express 2008 R2?


I cannot get SQL Express 2008 R2 with Advanced Tools to install or operate without errors unless I deactivate  PC Tools Spyware Doctor and restart my computer.
