Thank you and glad you got your account back.
You saved me as I was considering downloading the wallet.
Thanks Woody. Glad to have helped.
Well done Perry, I'm glad you got your account back with the help of theymos. spreading those kind of viruses is way too easy, this is why I use VMWare to run every wallet I suspect might be a malware.
BTW, did you format your computer after you got infected?
Thanks. Yes. They popped up a chatbox on my PC and sent me a message. I didn't even respond. I immediately shut down my PC and disconnected the ethernet. Then I backed up stuff that would be lost and reformatted. I have a SSD for my OS so it was a very quick and simple process. A waste of time, unfortunately. The reformat may have got rid of the virus but they're still trying to get at my stuff. They just tried to log my blockchain.info last night.
Remember guys, 2FA for everything. I wouldn't have been protected without it. Even if they get access to your PC and use "remember me" they can't verify the 2FA!
