I was editing a picture at the time and I needed a render of a hexagon. So i searched "Hexagon" in Google, found one I liked, and "right click on image -> Save image as -> Save" Like I normally do. This file was a bit different though, It was a ".SVG" which is my first time encountering it. I looked it up on google, and google said it was an 2d image file, so I figured i should try to open it in Photoshop. However, right after I tried, my Photoshop crashed. I was like. "No big deal, I'll just reopen Photoshop." But then it kept crashing. I deleted the image file and then went to save my after effects composition. Surprisingly After effects crashed too, and kept crashing after I tried to reopen it. Shortly after, I got an error that said "Windows explorer stop functioning, would you like to reload?" and that kept popping up. I decided to do a scan with Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes didnt find anything except some "PUP" stuff. I restarted my computer and everything seems to be working fine now.

Question: Is the image file below a virus or was it just my computer going funky and I have nothing to worry about?

Google Image File:
This is the picture I downloaded and tried opening in photoshop. (Could anyone please download and check it for infections? Too download just "right click on image -> Save image as -> Save")
