  1. My boss received this email and opened it numerous times.
    AVG recognized it once and quarantined it.
    With scans with AVG, NOD32 and Malwarebytes – Nothing has now been detected on the system.
    Is there a need to worry about the fact the script was run numerous times?
    He is worried that if he does internet banking etc, it may not be safe.
