I have a nasty hacker on my network and he installed a virus on my computer which is able to reinstall after a complete reformat. When I did a reformat the infected files popped up on the scanner. I used maleware byte's rootkit scan. This virus challenges some of my assumptions of how computers work.
Is there a way to get an infected computer from just having the file on one of the hard drives in the computer? I always thought that the user must execute the malicious program for it to get into the system.
After a reformat, is there a way to remotely install viruses on that computer?
