• Can malware spread from Android smartphone to Windows 10 PC?

    Hello, This is a security question from my friend. He believes he has malware on his Android smartphone. He has a Windows 10 PC. Both are on the same Wi-Fi. He's worried that the malware will go to his PC. Is that even possible? Should he be concerned?

  • Malware using extension .CFG

    My virus scanner isolates files with a .CFG extension. It parks them in a subfile labeled cfgall. I understand this is another name for W97M-ORTANT.A. I can't find anything with that name or W97 anywhere on the affected computer. This computer is running Windows XP. How do I get rid of this?
