    I upgraded Unity Hub to v 3.1.0, and a text file appeared on my desktop called "WITH-LOVE-FROM-AMERICA.txt". I am certain this came from Unity Hub, because others were complaining in:
    - this reddit thread
    - this forum thread
    - this forum thread.

    [EDIT] Upon researching, it seems this is 'hacktivism' intended to show vulnerabilities. Looks like there is more information in this Github Repo.

    If you live in Russia, it overwrites your hard drive with a heart emoji.
