As many can relate, I personally have also been a victim to this malicious procedure performed by hackers. The typical scenario is that one clicks on a promising website and then within milliseconds a file is automatically downloaded and displayed on the bottom of your screen. This can either be fortunate or unfortunate. The fact that it shows on the bottom of my screen (with a loading icon) gives me about five seconds to cancel the download which is just enough time. Does cancelling the download in time prevent the malware from infecting my computer? Or has it already been too late?
