On Thursday 1 February I used PatchMyPC Updater to do a fresh install of Format Factory, Free Studio and to update LibreOffice on my Windows 7 Pro PC. I use Avast and Malwarebytes (free versions) and did not get any warnings at the time.
The following day I started getting warnings from Avast. I was concerned so I ran numerous Malwarebytes and Avast scans and found several severe malware items, which were quarantined. I'm hoping that will be the last and that I am not going to see more. Here are examples of some of the detections:
- Win64:Evo-gen [Susp]
Could the infections have come from the Format Factory installation? I had a look on its web site below and the first download link looks suspicious. Please be aware that I did not download from a web site, it was installed through a silent install with PatchMyPC Updater.
Can anyone confirm if any serious malware could come from this link?
Previous to this incident, I have had no virus/malware problems with my PC in over 4 years of use.
