Is this a milestone in becoming an old person? A malicious attachment came through my work email from a corporate email address, it looked legit, and I was super distracted. I think I may have executed it. Or maybe I meant to execute it and walked away while I was clicking. Either way, my system is compromised now. It was disguised as an 11k zip file. I’m not sure what it could be. I just finished a run with AVG, which detected nothing, and I’m doing Avast next.
How good are these programs, really? If they come up clean, am I good? I don’t want to use a machine that might have something nasty on it, like a keylogger. Am I better off just scrapping things and doing a full wipe? Where’s my social security check? Why doesn’t ice cream taste as good as it did when I was young? Get off my lawn!
