Welcome to Malwaretips.Happened last night.
Fortuntely this was just a dream and I had not lost any data, or that "Windows Defender Antivirus" failed to detect Malware.
- Downloaded 2 small executables from the Internet.
- I ran the first red-logo executable and the screen flashed black.
- It finally returned, but it was taken hostage by "FandaRansomware".
- I panicked. I had no backups. All was lost.
You can say that again! Solution: Have them use another PC, preferably with something that stops autorun.inf from the USB.When a malware incident takes place (or almost takes place) on one of the computers in my home, it's always a flash drive that's to blame. A family member comes home with a flash drive that's been used on infected machines.
