- If I can understand Kali enough just to recover my files that's optimistic so I'm not worried about user file loss via Kali I either get them back or I don't. Is it possible to do damage to basic computer function not just the OS by use of a livecd of Kali linux I do not intend to install?
2.Would the virus still be there if I wiped my Ubuntu OS with a clean install of ubuntu again or do I need to change the version of linux I install on my macbook next time to tails or fedora or something to eradicate the remote hacker's access? Long before the virus I'd wiped the commercial apple software with ubuntu studio as apple annoyed me with siri's randomness.
Yes I'm sure I was hacked there's a new user remotely added after I (ok to laugh) took a stranger's advice to install handbrake via the terminal for one thing. The keyboard and trackpad now stop working from the HDD directly after signing into the valid user account but booting from the cd drive the keyboard and trackpad work ok for another. My OS is ubuntu but it's still a macbook.
Can someone please explain what is wrong with the above question? No communication doesn't really clarify things to me, nor to the next user to look up my unanswered question. Again thanks.
