Latest Malware try not to be detected by being subtle in abuse and leave backups in your system that can be accessed later by their botnet thru a backdoor made by the malware.

Always deactivate developer or administrator options in your devices. Always have a password and make it difficult enough for the malware to crack and memorable enough for you. Do not use password managers and never save login or account credentials in your browsers, apps or digital notes.

Deny unknown processes in any application, browser and device. If in doubt of your action, contact CIT or deny by default.
