I recently started using ubuntu as my main OS, but I am sort of addicted to ms office so I installed PlayOnLinux to be able to use it. I also use Ubuntu one cloud service to make back up of certain files like my assignments and other personal files. but recently I started observing some strange lnk.desktop files showing on my desktop. they appear when ever I open MS word to type my projects. They point to a folder in the
/home/z3r0n/.wine/drive_c/windows/command/start.exe folder. I copied the file that they point to and uploaded it to an online virus scanner which identified the file as a cloud malware.
/home/z3r0n/.wine/drive_c/windows/command/start.exe Win32.Malware.Heur_Generic.A.(kcloud) 3f886e0ea4eb35074c4d3341e8383273b6f245823bc1ea934f47561199206040 sha256 9620af530f0400fafcf6e0b35427d9e60b71f394 sha1 fe66b5254d369c6dffe4e8055f926578 md5
I want to know if any of you guys have experienced something similar. I made a clean install and I am now using LibreOffice instead. I am trying to stay away from UbuntuOne Cloud and installing PlayOnLinux until I find I a valid lead.
any pointers will be appreciated
