I took the lazy way out, backed up important data, scanned it on my Gentoo system, reformated and reinstalled, no problems from the files I backed up yet. Reformats always work. Just wish I didn't have to.
God forbid I ever run into one of these pests who have the nerve to create said malware, they'll find out just why I bothered to get a concealed carry permit.
Though my suspicions lay around the idea that a lot of people profit from malware and fixing it. Tis why I only ever use freeware period. Nobody should ever pay for antivirus software. Ever.
Of course, there is the random fat greasy pimply 30 year old boy living in his mother's basement trying to get revenge at the world because he is a fail.
