I am running 2014 Acronis. I recently received a mail demanding 2000 bit coins by a mail with header of the Alphabets I normally use for my Password. I ignore it and the day after I got a mail from the same person with a subject Screen shot.
I have two drives in my desktop - one for software and one for Data. I back-up both in different time on a an External drive.
My question is if this person has implanted something on my computer that gives an access to my Password. - how safe is the back-up? The back-up will contain the implant. I could format my disk and recover the data. Will that be free of implant?
