So backstory I was being a teenager downloading song rips when suddenly as I start moving one file I see a folder named *“dat files”*. I open it and all it contains is a dat file saying “we’re coming_0_0”. As you could tell I was and am reasonably freaked out by it. This happened around 30 minutes ago.
I check on it’s properties and it tells me it’s been sitting in my pc since february 8th or something (maybe april) and just now today april 9th I “accessed” it. Windows tells me it comes from another computer so it blocked it but I opened it with the notes app and it just has two weird ? Symbols with a greater than (<) symbol between them so no spooky code.
Im checking websites to see if I’m hacked when low and behold a computer appears in my network and my main C:/ files are looking weird with weird lettering sort of like “**=0fhsb0ha’habvfb**” or something along those lines. I nope the fuck out and try to find a system restore point which is what I am currently doing now and have done.
Now what? Could it be erased? Is it just some bull? Are hackers actually going to come for me? Idk.
