REASONS NOT TO OPEN FILES FROM PEOPLE YOU DON’T REALLY TRUST AND WHY YOU SHOULD USE MALWAREBYTES AND DITCH AVG ETC.
Well, I kinda opened a shoddy file from someone I didn’t really trust. I scanned it with AVG and everything, it said it was ok.
MISTAKE NUMBER 1 : NEVER TRUST A SUSPICIOUS FILE EVEN IF YOUR ANTIVIRUS SAYS IT’S “OK”
FUN FACT : Files can be obfuscated and almost undetectable by normal antiviruses. I knew this, but I went ahead anyways… Dumb mistake on my part lol.
So the file was encrypted, AVG didn’t detect it. How do you get rid of the virus?
MALWAREBYTES :This anti-malware software is the equivalent of a Hiroshima bomb. It’s completely free and got rid of what AVG couldn’t find. You don’t need the full version to get the hiroshima bomb effects, just run a quick scan or a full scan and presto, your virus issue IS GONE..
I won’t even be using any sort of antivirus software anymore, I’ll just run malwarebytes next time I think something is wrong…
DAMAGE REPORT : Some asshole named “gh0st” switched my tumblr password, unfollowed all the blogs i follow and posted some dumb things.
Solution : I will follow back anybody who messages me, or likes this post. I’ll probably reblog this every day until I get all the important people I lost back.
MESSAGE ME OR LIKE THIS POST, I WILL FOLLOW YOU BACK.
sorry for the dash spam and fuck you “gh0st”
I’ve switched all my important passwords and I should be ok. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Peace.
