Hello everyone on the forums.



I've came here to tell everyone about a pretty sticky sitution I had with malware about a year ago.



So I saw a "Minecraft Modpack Creator" on the "Minecraft Forum" (If you don't know what Minecraft is, it isn't very relevant to the story so you can ignore that if you would like). Anyways, after running it, suprisingly nothing happened. The only thing significant about it was a new icon on the Icons bar, showing a Rat (note that I was a complete newbie to malware at the time so I didn't even think of it being that). Anyways, I tried restarting. Still there. It wasn't effecting me so I continued using my computer as normal until.........


A java chat window poped up asking me about some personal information.


I was a bit worried but I decided to wait it up. It came back again later, and a few times after that, then (very strangely) never again. Then.....


Part 2 coming soon, if anyone would like it.
