The virus and previous post in question:

I messed up bad and downloaded then ran a exe file i thought was legit. from antivirus


earlier today I noticed there was a report by JoeSandbox (I have no idea if this is reputable) and was hoping someone could take a look at it and help me understand it better. I had a friend who knows more about this than me take a look at it and he said it was a remote access trojan. After looking what this actually was and with talking with him I’m kind of terrified of what data could’ve been taken or viewed. At first I thought I didn’t have any real important information on my pc but then I remembered I had tax returns on my pc.

After maybe 5 or 10 minutes after I realized what did I removed the Lan. Before I knew what safe boot was or that i could safe with networking in plugged my cord back in for no more than 3(ish) minutes to download Malwarebytes then took it off back online. I’m a freaked out my information from my tax returns are now out there.

I’m going to do a complete wipe and fresh install of windows.
