Malware Detected in Monitor Driver


Recommended Posts

Not long ago I bought a cheap USB 3.0 to hdmi dongle. It requires a driver to be installed. After plugging in the dongle, the file explore recognized it as a storage device containing 3 files (2 exe files for windows xp and windows 7 and 1 mac file). I guess they are the driver files. To be safe, I ran an in-depth scan on the 3 files , and there were no detections. Afterwards, I uploaded the 2 exe files to Virustotal, and for both files 4 engines detected malicious content. Should I be worried? If I dont run the driver installation, I wouldnt be able to use the dongle.

 

I would be grateful if you guys can have a look
