I (stupidly) ran a .pif file attached in a spam email that I can assume was containing some malware. Basically I double clicked on it and it was opened with Mono. I didn't see anything running and after a while I reboot the system.
I understand a .pif file can contain a windows executable, but I have no idea about the effect of running a malicious .pif with mono under Ubuntu. Should I assume my Linux system is compromised?
Edit: Good idea scanning with VirusTotal! This is the result
It seems indeed a fresh malware targeting windows. Is there the risk that Mono executes its malicious commands in a way that something like "delete c:\*.*" becomes "rm /* -rf" in linux? Even if I am not root, many user files should be at risk.
