So I am on a Windows Server 2003 Small business server, and I recently just installed a Smart UPS 1500 rackmountable Battery backup.
I want to manage the powerchute program, so I go to their website to get the latest software... I than download APC Powerchute version 9
I go to install it and BAM... Privacy protection Malware everywhere popping up.
I start freaking out, all critical data is on this server, it starts killing all the services, no .exe can run.. i'm like.. WTF?
So luckily... I didnt click on anything.. I quickly logged off (restarted), than logged on as a different user.
I than loaded/updated malwarebytes, and ran a FULL scan... took about 3 hours but it got everything and I am back to normal again.
So the moral of the story is... I went to a very legit website and caught this malware.. you cant trust any site these days.
What dont kill you, makes you more strong!
