So i am new here so hello everyone! i recently gotten an email from the human resources director at my old job, it's a PDF and i opened it i admit (don't know why) but today i heard she had been "hacked" supposedly. I am going to attack the PDF can someone scan if dissect it and do what you do to find out if i am infected with something for the last 2-3 weeks.


Thanks guy i really really appreciate it.

G'day MrBeeem, and Welcome to BC


For obvious reasons I will not download that file to my PC


VIRUSTOTAL  offers a free scan of any file under 32MB


Simply DOWNLOAD virus total and drag and drop the file to the scanner
