In the last 24 hours I got a few similar messages by clients from the same country. All they say is something like they like my work, they need a few illustrations for their website and they are sending me powerpoint file so I can see info for each illustration on slides.
So I downloaded one of these .ppt files and tried to open it and I got a message by Powerpoint saying it may contain malicious files so of course I closed it and deleted it. Right after that I contacted one of these clients asking if they can send me screenshots of .ppt file since I can’t open it. This person was online but didn’t reply what seemed little weird but okay. Some time after that I noticed that my antivirus program is deleted and I ran one other program and it showed I had around 10 trojan viruses which is super weird to me because I didn’t download anything in a long time except files that buyers send me.
Did anyone experience anything similar to this? I’m really weirded out by this since nothing similar ever happened to me
