Hi, I clicked on a link a few days ago and on virus total, someone made a graph and most of the connected files seem to be very malicious. Virus total even said that kaspersky detected it as a trojan win32. I did it on my phone and if you want to see the scan or graph, the link to the website I scanned is here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/70f3f1ec69b28a44049e4002ba9a4645e14f4122e9fe142012842e4bc26630b9/summary the link to file is here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/3eb026d8b778716231a07b3dbbdc99e2d3a635b1956de8a1e6efc659330e52de/summary here is a screenshot of the file, what can I do?? Im using an iphone.

Hello @Lester,

Welcome back! 

  1. (on the iOS) when the link was accessed, did Kaspersky Security Cloud show any alerts?
  2. Was the link accessed via the web, via an email & or via a sms? 
  3. Is Kaspersky Security Cloud free or subscription? 

Please let us know?

Thank you:pray_tone3:

@Lester Also :
Please see Kaspersky Whitelist verdict for the EXE object.
Please see Opentip.Kaspersky verdict for the Website URL

IMHO , your iPhone (iOS) did not run above executable file.

Thanks, but I was planning to get security cloud on my new pc that I was going to get soon. I was wondering if theres a possibility that whatever malware is in my phone would transfer to my new pc through my network connection. If so, would security cloud notify me?

@Lester You are welcome. Kaspersky’s detection rate is close to 100%  :-)

So what your saying is that, yes, It will detect if malware gets transferred through internet connections onto a pc?

Additionally :
In the meantime , a new Anti-Phishing feature that is blocking dangerous links has been implemented  in Kaspersky Security Cloud for iOS and later.
