However, first things first. It is important to make a note that the virus is a very dangerous malware and it could cause great harm to your PC and you alone. The malware is spread through advertisements mostly, but there are few other methods of distribution too.

Here is a short list with the most popular ones:

  • The Anti-Obscene virus could be spread via e-mail attachments. Have you noticed how sometimes it takes longer than usual to save and/or open given attachment? If it takes longer and you have to click multiple times to save the file, then it is likely that the files is infected. Also, you could be asked to download additional program in order to be able to access the attachment. It is very important to scan all attachments before saving them on your hard-drive or even a flash-drive, which you will later use to access them. Flash drives are one of the top 5 in virus distribution as they are portable memory gadgets, thus, very vulnerable to malware.
  • The Anti-Obscene virus could be spread through a particular type of e-mail messages called  phishing e-mails. These letters could be in your inbox at one moment and a minute later you won’t be able to find them in neither of your folders because they will be gone. They remove themselves! Also, when you click to open one it could either close automatically and very quickly, or it might have flashing text, or no content at all. Hackers use names taken out of your address book and hack your friends’ accounts first and then use them to spread viruses. Be alert for those!
  • The Anti-Obscene virus could also be distributed through software bundling. This method of spreading is similar to the one with the e-mail attachments described above. We all know the websites that allow us to download games, movies, videos, music, etc. for free and we all take pride in obtaining the newest editions and publications for free, but CHEAP IS NOT ALWAYS BEST! While trying to download one file other virus caring files get attached to it and get into your computer. Later on you will notice slowness in performance, glitches, bugs, missing files, the computer being frozen or not being able to use some or all of your internet browsers — this is a sign that your PC has been infected with the Anti-Obscene virus and you need to uninstall it immediately! The name “software bundling” comes from the bundle of files, wanted and unwanted, you end up with.

Aside from the methods we just described, the Anti-Obscene virus could show its presence by random and excessive popping of ads on the websites your most frequently visit. These are very annoying and impossible to close! Yes, you may try rebooting your PC, but it’s best to scan it, detect the malware, use the guidance from the removal guide and remove it as quickly as possible.

If you are using Chrome, for instance, as your browser of preference, but notice that all of a sudden Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer begin to open randomly and to show you websites you may not have even heard of, then your computer has gotten the malware. Try closing everything (though it may be impossible at this point), but definitely consult with the removal guide ASAP and remove the virus,i.e, eliminate it!

We all get computer viruses at one point or another. As you familiarize yourself with the signs of the malware, you will be able to react promptly and protect your device and personal data.
