A couple of weeks ago my computer was really acting up. I had signed up for internet security thru what I thought was a Microsoft company a few days before that. One morning while I was doing some online banking I couldn’t get the information to download. I called the bank and they said my account had been attached by a virus. So now I am wondering why my internet security is not working? It says it is when I check out the icon on my desk top. When I look farther, it seems I was fooled.
I tried to purchase and download a security system I had before, but it won’t download so I call them. The tech was very helpful and I gave him access to fix my computer and download the security software. As he is starting his fix it he says “Oh no! what have you done?” I’m thinking now “Oh no! what have I done?” I tell him about the supposed Microsoft security I had purchased. Then he tells me what happened.
It seems my computer was infected with malware and worms from this phony security system. They could watch every key stroke I made and even watch me thru the webcam. He said they could see and control everything I was doing if they chose to. It took the real security tech and a real Microsoft tech almost 2 hours to repair my computer from all the malware and worms to make it secure again.
I used to joke about the NSA spying on us. Who would care about what I had to say anyway? Right? Well, evidently they did care about what I had to say and even what I looked like. I can’t say positively that it was the NSA, but it sure could have been.
