Ok so I received a message today on my Fiverr inbox. It said “Halo! I want order servc.
I need to do this quickly.
Pls see task.
tomorrow will be ready??”
I downloaded it and it was a ZIP file. I have a very deep knowledge of information security ( I have a masters in IT security) and when I opened the Zip file, I could guess it was a virus. It contained a word document and some instructions on how to run the zip file.
My antivirus caught a file trying to remotely control my computer. I took care of it, scanned my system and cleared any trace of the files.
I imagine what could have happened, I try to backup my client files regularly and I also have a backup laptop, just in case. Please take note of this and always be careful when opening files, I have reported the Seller already.
