'Try my game'
« on: October 05, 2023, 01:26:13 PM »
Unfortunately I fell for this recently on discord after executing a .rar with malware, and while I set my account to be deleted on there, I also got rid of all the files I could in discord that weren't there originally (and Avast premium managed to quarantine a bit of malware that was loading during startup, thanks for that!), but I was wondering if there was anything else I could do about this?

I would run a scan with Malwarebytes antimalware and Malwarebytes adwcleaner and let them remove what they find

All on the Interwebz, that seems to good to be true, is that.
So once bitten, twice shy is the best policy, besides those scans that were advised to you.
