I have been recently bombarded with a particularly nasty piece of malware.


While I believe to have resolved the issue with Windows 10's reset (to which I chose to keep my personal files) and Mbam, Spybot, TDSSkiller, and aswMBR for reassurance. I have also removed the malware-riddled 'windows.old' directory through disk cleanup.


Now given that I've also recently entered my credit card number onto Amazon (to which I removed from the account immediately after the purchase and is NOT saved onto Chrome's autofill) prior to the infection, could the potential attacker have possibly retrieved that information through my local cookies, cache or elsewhere?
