Scary possible rootkit encounter last night…


I was playing league and legends with a friend last night until 11:40pm. I alt+tab and I see that I’ve sent a message that I didnt send on discord. Which was this : ¯_(ツ)_/¯. Quite shocking to say the least and here is the conversation with my friend and I from last night if you want to see. https://ibb.co/L6sbzNR

Anyways this is very shocking. I have 2fa on all my accounts and pretty strong passwords, I’m suspecting I may have a RAT installed. So first steps I took were to whip the drives completely which I’ve done and changed all my passwords. I’m really thinking about investing in an anti virus now as I literally do everything on my PC. Any thoughts on this and had similar experiences? Thank you!

**”investing in an anti virus”**

Please dont, paid for antiviruses just adds extra features that doesn’t improve them at finding malware, and if you want to scan for malware, use dedicated scanners, like, Malwarebytes, Hitmanpro and ESET online scanner, though this is very likely malware related, as if you had a RAT the first thing they would go after is your passwords and account details, and try to hide their presence.
