    I downloaded a RAT. AND IM WORRIED!

    Hello everyone who reads this thank you for your time and advice.



    Last week I was lured into downloading a link that would improve my QOL at TOA..after downloading the link about 45 seconds later my screen went black I changed password immediately but once I gained access to my account everything was gone 4b gp.



    Since then I did a Windows 11 (restore) after reading on the internet that wasn't going to be enough I proceeded to download Windows 11 onto a USB and delete and reinstalled windows 11 completely. When doing so where the partition screen popped up I deleted all then reinstalled windows on my hard drive.



    Now after doing this I signed into my windows account and have something called clouddrive and in that I still had some screenshots of some things which I figured would of been deleted. So it has my anxiety on 100. Is my account safe to use now?

    Was the reinstalling of windows 11 and deleting the partitions enough?

    Hi,

    Firstly, big RIP to your 4b.

    I am assuming you are referring to Windows OneDrive. OneDrive stores your files in the cloud. If you have it synced then once the RAT has been deleted, it should be deleted from OneDrive. It depends on your settings.

    If you had it synced, technically the RAT may be in your OneDrive meaning that you may still have the RAT.

    Seems like you took the right approach with reinstalling Windows 11.

    If you wiped your whole drive you should be fine. Make sure you have nothing in the cloud

    Careful, I've heard this lurking around. If you return to the game, they'll loot you again when you have a decent amount of gold.

    I don't know how to get rid of the RAT, however I'm just telling you this a pre-caution.

    Restoring windows was the right choice. I would not worry about the items in your one drive, however if you are still worried you can just safely delete them.

    Going forward, if you aren't 100% sure about a program, I highly recommend running it in a sandbox environment.
