I’ve downloaded the monkrus adobe 2021 suite and I’m fairly nervous to run the .exe, as it’s my first time downloading something from them through a separate site. I used to use a direct download from a telegram that was password protected, and now their main site goes through a separate tracker, rutracker dot com.
Some people are saying that the monkrus software has trojans within that run bitcoin miners, etc. since I’ve used their programs before and not had an issue pop up with my malware detection, is it likely fine? Is it also likely fine if I run the .exe and a virus scanner immediately following?
I don’t understand how viruses work and I just wonder if a virus scanner would be able to pick up on something within the script of an .exe, or if they only work for obvious virus files.
thanks for any help or insight
