Okay so like, I was trying to find the customer service phone number for a website, couldn't find it. So I googled it, found their customer service number on google. Or so I thought.
I called the number, this indian guy on the phone told me to go to a website, next thing you know the website is some kind of remote admin tool and he was moving my mouse. I started to feel awkward, then my friend knocked on the door, and after a few minutes of feeling awkward I made an excuse to hang up the phone.
Then it dawned on me, it was fake customer support, and he used Remote Desktop on me.
Now, the computer I was on had a Firewall on as well as Vipre security measures. The computer is currently shut off, and I am on a different computer.
I'm kind of panicking right now, what do I do to wipe all traces of possible hacks/malware he installed on me. I don't know for sure if he put any hacks or malware on it, he seemed mostly interested in getting my GPS location for some reason.
Anyway, really creeped out right now, would appreciate the help. And yes I know I am an idiot, I am sorry but today I was having a really bad day and not really thinking clearly at all when I called the number.
