If anyone here thinks that this virus was all made up by this Norman66 guy, you are all sadly mistaken. Here is a link where hundreds of traders incluidng myself lost large amounts of money. https://onlineforexreview.com/antikapitalist-exe-virus/

I had invested $10k in a very large Pamm account with over $5 million, and our entire account was wiped out by this virus today. The account was in the millions in profit.

Again, the problem is between chair and keyboard. yes I mean problem is the user.
Quote from the website
This damn virus is downloaded with some EAs from Russian companies apparently, and certainly mine demo accounts or live. It begins to open and close operations in a disorderly way. All you can do is watch your money get lost in front of your eyes.
It is an automatic virus that undermines several platforms like MT4 and Ninjatrader. Although I knew of cases where accounts were affected in cTrader.
There is no apparent antivirus that detects it in time before it is activated on your pc.

Only idiot can run unknown russian EA on live account and watch to destroy it.
The simplest way to fix such behavior is to change password.

Yes its true that someone has to actually down load a file, that has the virus on to your machine in order to do any damage or create trading losses.
