Hi all :)

 

I found out about this place via googling my computers recently weird behaviour (possible malware / virus infection ?)

Super-stressed out at the moment as this virus/malware comes on top of an already bad situation (health & financial) so I would grateful for any help !

 

Will be posting in the "Am I infected" forum after this post :)

 

Thanks for your time reading this !

Hi again all !

 

It seems I have resolved my problem with the malware - which is good...

 

...BUT a warning for anyone active on these forums - it seems some people actively scan/mine these forums for data/vulnerabilities to approach for malicious reasons. Just after I had posted the logs requested by the people helping out, I have received TWO contact requests on the "Teamviewer"-platform - where I have over the years using the software NEVER had even a single request before (I had an old version of their remote-control software installed, which probably have a few vulnerabilities)... so be careful what you request in terms of logs & data - and also what you post from your own computers.

 

Quietman7, please check my PM and remove the info I requested in last reply... and again, thanks for all the help !

 

/Magnus

I replied to your PM but just so you know...there is nothing in the logs you posted which would be of any value to cyber-criminals or hackers.

Please read this topic...Posting logs in open forum
