Ran Piriform Recuva and my payroll account had attempted hack

Recommended Posts

Not a Malwarebytes product... just a heads-up...

On Monday, June 20, 2022 (at about 11:30AM USA Eastern Time) I downloaded and ran Piriform Recuva.  Recuva finished a deep scan at about 2PM.  ONE HOUR AFTER  RECUVA finished its cand, at 3PM, someone tried to hack into my PayChex.com payroll account - yes, I had my PayChex.com login info in one of the recovered files.  Was the attempted hack a coincidence?  I think not.  Luckily, my PayChex.com account requires a cell phone text security code - this is how I know my PayChex.com account had an attempted hack - I received the text security code for login.

I posted this message on Piriform forums - they need to look into this.

Hello @ajaxlepinski If you are seeking help to check your Windows pc for onboard malware ....then do the preliminaries listed here https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/9573-im-infected-what-do-i-do-now/#comment-46166

Just only attach the report files when done. and use a known-clean machine to change the password for your account at Paychex { do not do it on a suspect machine }
