Because I watched one a few days ago without knowing about the virus thing, and my computer is perfectly fine. Did a scan with four different antivirus/antimalware programs and came up spotless.
Everyone I’ve seen who’s freaking about having watched it accidentally hasn’t had any problems yet either. They’re all something along the lines of “nothings happened yet but im scared now omg”.
I’m by far not a software expert, but I’ve cleaned up quite a few very fucked up computers that had more diseases than a hooker with leprosy.
