As for files downloaded from the Internet, we highly recommend keeping away from file-sharing websites, pop-up advertisements, and other unreliable sources. Of course, whenever in doubt, you should scan installers, text documents, and other downloaded files with your chosen security tool. The file carrying malware can look like a harmless photo or a text document too, so it is best to remain cautious at all times.

Also, the note should explain how to contact the malware’s developers via email.
