I'm developing an interest in ethical hacking
from all I am reading here.
I have tried downloading some things (eBooks, "tool packs" etc).
I got them but, as soon as I tried to move/open them, AVG kicked in and started deleting files that were contained inside.
Each time it happened too quick for me to see what was being deleted, but i think one of them said keygen or keylogger.
Is it possible that these are necessary parts of the educational materials i am downloading?
Or is it more likely that it was some attempt on the uploader's behalf to infect my machine?
If Q1 = true, I will have to turn off my AVG to re-DL, but I don't want to put my PC in jeopardy either... any suggestions?
