So I’m sitting in the science center at 2:45am, finishing up with 5 pages of social psychology notes. I made a point to save my document on the desktop every 20 minutes, just in case something happens.
Well, something happened.
At 3am, a window pops up alerting me that a program called “GhostGum” has now begun. Every window I have open is instantly closed and the computer goes into a restarting program. People in the room start freaking out. 25 minutes later the computer turns back on. We find out that every user document has been wiped clean [on] the computer. No sign of it in temporary files or automatically saved word documents. Nothing.
Script gone wrong or malware from hell?
