What the Script of Play Store on Windows 11 Did

With the help of the script, a tool will be downloaded to your system, in which you will be given the facility to install Google Play Store on your Windows 11 operating system. What’s more, you’ll also find obfuscated code in the tool that will allow it to set up a range of easily defined tasks, including in Chromium-based browsers such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Brave. But only those Windows computers will be targeted whose language is set to English i.e. Hindi or other language Windows users will not be able to take advantage of this facility.

Malware search groups thought the extension’s first purpose was to deceive people through advertising as the browser extension was then run in the background in a “headless” browser window, effectively allowing it to be used by the user who was hiding from them.

Along with this, some such scripts were also run whose purpose was to fulfill the scheduled tasks done correctly. This means, that any computer will completely monitor the active tasks running inside it and whenever you open the task manager, it will kill every browser or every extension being used for advertising fraud at the same time.

Most commonly created related pair functions use curl to automatically download files from the original website, which very quickly delivers each malicious script, and then large-scale whatever users download and Simply execute.

Well this is good news that whoever was behind this attack has not been completely successful yet, but if he was successful in doing this, then it could have been very bad for many people all over the world, the curl task was used for nothing more than downloading a test called “esd”, which did nothing. We should thank them for quick action from CloudFlare, the domain from which curl task downloaded files is currently removed, this means we are all completely safe now.

You can fix this in two ways. First of all, you first of all manually delete all the affected files and all the scheduled tasks.
