I got an Update notification yesterday, which turned out to be a virus

Recommended Posts

Yesterday morning I got an alert in ESET that there was an update. When I applied it the updated downloaded and ESET restarted, I didn't give it any more notice. Apparently this "Update" simply uninstalled ESET. About 5 minutes later someone hacked my bank account and wire transferred all my money out. The virus seems to have spread through my local network, because I had the same "update" on 2 other machines, one of which I applied, and it ALSO had ESET uninstalled.
