Hahaha.. Dont get me wrong.. I didn’t mean the companies are bad.. Its the rogue security software 😉

Captain Obvious to the rescue! I’m in Linux and don’t have Windows installed 😉

Moral of the story:

  • do not simply trust free stuffs
  • keep your AV up to date
  • it is worth it to have antispyware installed (Malwarebyte’s Anti-Malware is not bad)
  • find anything suspicious? keep a copy of it.. share the sample with me 😛
