Ok guys I have serious security problem here and I need your help quickly
A friend of my friend in my xfire account just gave me a link to a video file
He told me its a trailer
I opened the link and it asked me to update my flash player and gave me download link
And I made the terrible mistake of opening the link and downloading the file ( I know, but I trusted that <censored>) I think you know the rest
When the download completed I quickly noticed that I made a terrible mistake
The downloaded file icon (which was on desktop) vanished after a second
I’m no idiot so I quickly went to control panel to check my firewall then I saw it was fully disabled and I wasn’t able to turn it on, then I checked my anti virus (eset smart security 4) and the same had happened to it , it was fully disabled, so I quickly turned off the router and started a full in dept computer scan(scan still works)
Please help me! What should I do ? right now im using another computer
And here is that link to the corrupt flash player don’t download if you don’t know what your doing itll disable antivirus and firewall very quickly
WARNING: don’t go if you don’t know what your doing!
I need some professional help !
Thank you and please answer me as quickest as possible.
