[Clove is trying not to sound too panicked, but it's... not really working.]

I need help from a hacker, or a computer person. There's a woman from here who hates my world, and she hacked into my computer; she's put new things onto it and changed the interface, and I don't know anything about how to fix it.

[She isn't from the electronics district, after all.]

She called it "malware". If anyone finds out about this, my family and I could get into huge trouble; they'd think we did it, and we're not supposed to be able to mess around with this stuff. They'd think we were spies, or resistance workers--

[-- She cuts herself off to breath deeply, trying to calm down.]

If they think we did this, we could have all our chances for a good life ruined. We could be put in prison, or killed. I need it off.

Malware, huh? I might be able to help with that. You just gotta let me access your computer.

I'm gonna try a few programs that should help clean it up. But just in case I miss something, tell me if there are any "safe" transgressions you might be able to get away with--pictures of celebrities, a movie, or something.

And what are the consequences if they don't come from somewhere legal?

'Cause here's my reasoning: If someone comes looking into your computers because of this malware, they're gonna be suspicious if they don't see anything. So give them something, but something that looks much more innocent. They'd be more forgiving if they find evidence of a teenage girl's crush, for example.

Okay. It was just a backup plan, and the program's cleaning it up pretty well. Though if you manage to clutter this with pictures, it might make any remaining malware look like an accident anyway.

Okay, good point. You got an idea for a backup plan, just in case I miss something?

[personal profile] boostup4beetbuster 2014-06-18 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
Okay. Got three programs running, but I'll see what else I can find.

Couple hours? I can also try copying everything over to another computer and searching it over manually, but that'll take a few days.

Okay. And I know this is going to sound like the dumbest advice in the world, but stay calm. Getting agitated is only going to do you worse in the long run.

Good. I've got this running, and I'm already copying everything to an isolated computer.
boostup4beetbuster: (Serious)

In short, it'll take a few hours, but I'll look through it manually.

No problem!
