Well, tbh I dont know if its even a virus.Not really easy to say, if you have network shares with infected pc, probably yes; but if you share only the same wifi connection it's less probably - really depends even on type of infection, a trojan/worm/backdoor could spread to your pc, maybe.
If you keep your security on, you can stay quite secure
If you can keep secure also the other pc, it's even better
Not nice. Have you tried to upload game installer on VT? (from infected pc, of course, not yours).my sister downloaded a random game from the first google search result.
No scanning no nothing.
i am not 100% sure about this, since I have not looked into this setting yet, but wouldn't that be counter productive for most home PC's on the same network? And maybe even computers on a company network? Since they would likely want to connect with other devices on the same network to access shared stuff? or access network printers?Try AP isolation in router setting. It prevent devices from direct connect with other devices on network.
Not yet, my brother has been playing this game since it got downloaded, ill do it when ill have a chance.
Yes, a pc on the same wifi network as an infected pc can also become infected. There are a multitude of ways this can happen. You have to research the topic as it is a rather large topic that cannot be covered with a few sentences.
I can't be sure, as I never used an homegroup. But it uses a password between the pcs, so maybe it's slightly better than plain share. Of course, also "regular" shares are password protected, but the code is stored on pc for both types....If you have a few home PC's on the same network (wifi or hardwired) and have enabled "home group" feature to be able to share stuff automatically between them, has malware been able to use this as an attack vector to spread to the other PC's? Or is this somehow patched by microsoft?
A computer can't get infected if it's switched off. Also, if one's disconnected from the wifi, the chances of the other getting infected is pretty much zero.Alright I have a new question, if i had my PC Disconnected from wifi the whole time the infected computer was on the wifi and ill make sure the. Infected computer wont be on wifi again. Will the comoutet that was disconnected from wifi infected?
Yes it can.
From the business side of it, this is the point of policy based segregation, vlans, AP isolation, etc. So on a commercial router you'd have subnets that may look like this;i am not 100% sure about this, since I have not looked into this setting yet, but wouldn't that be counter productive for most home PC's on the same network?

I scanned the virus on vt and one anti malware program found
I have scanned it on vt and one anti virus program said its Malware.Heuristic!ET (rdm+)
