So over the past few months I’ve noticed my mouse randomly moves by itself occasionally.
A few nights ago after 12 AM I saw it trying to open “Remote Access Desktop” and even try to log in by itself once I shut down the computer I Googled and looked on the internet and think I have a RAT (Remote Access Trojan); the symptoms I found with the mouse issue match up with attempts made on my emails and bank accounts in the past few months that luckily were thwarted via Google and my bank account.
I tried to download malwarebytes and I can’t seem to clear enough space for it (I’m struggling to keep 200 MB free), everytime I delete a program it still only says 150-300MB or so free
I make music and it probably comes from cracked instrument software I downloaded sometime last year or really anytime over past few years, but I specifically can notice issues with the mouse and attempts to log into my stuff over the past year.
With clearing my PC off except for backed up important files being a last resort…(bc it’s probably in a virtual instrument I may still use to this day, no way for me to know), what are my options? Eventually I wanna just buy a new computer and replace the instruments with “purchased” copies but is there a service I can run that can find the RAT in whatever folder it’s in? I ran Windows Defender offline and online + AVG free version and both didn’t find anything.
