Fips Parcel

Fips Parcel is malware that can monitor your activities on the computer and send the obtained information to the hackers who control it. Fips Parcel can access password details, login credentials, and other confidential information that can later be used for criminal deeds.

Fips Parcel

Some users have recieved an email from Fipsparcel.com claiming that a parcel has been delivered and should be picked up.

A Trojan is generally a highly versatile computer virus that can have many different purposes which is why such threats are typically considered unpredictable. Besides, Trojans can be spread in a number of stealthy ways and can be used to complete a wide variety of illegal activities one after the other. These two are very important characteristics that need to be taken into account when dealing with those threats.

An infection like Fips Parcel, for instance, could be bundled with almost any type of web content – from torrents, to malicious spam emails, malvertisements, and illegal web sites, to all kind of spam messages, on-screen notifications and even fake security and software prompts. Whatever the delivery method is, the contamination typically occurs without any visible symptoms. This allows the malware to complete its malicious agenda without being disturbed and, sadly, this agenda could involve different illegal or highly destructive actions.

The Fips Parcel Virus 

Most Trojans, including Fips Parcel, can be effectively used to destroy something stored on the infected computer or directly damage the device in such a way that only a system re-install may be able to repair it (sometimes not even that). The Trojan can target personal or work-related data and even some system files which may be essential for your machine’s normal functioning.

Another potential use may be for the so-called backdooring. In short, this function allows the Trojan to serve as a helper for other malware, such as Ransomware or Spyware, that allows the additional threats to enter the computer. In such a case, the Trojan’s goal is to scan your system and look for any existing weaknesses that could be exploited. A possible vulnerability, for instance, could be an outdated program. If such a weakness is found, your computer could be compromised by the Ransomware or Spyware without any visible symptoms that could indicate the infection.

The Fips Parcel Email

According to researchers, Fips Parcel is a virus of the Trojan Horse variety. Fips Parcel is distributed through malvertising, and other social engineering techniques, and could be used for banking theft, espionage, Ransomware distribution, and more.

Yet another possible aim of a Trojan like Fips Parcel may be to serve as a data extractor. Such malware can secretly collect details about your online bank accounts, your passwords, your social media accounts, and everything you type with your keyboard. The cyber scammers behind the infection can use this data to take advantage of your private information by making copies of it and using it to hack into your social media accounts, steal your identity or drain your bank accounts.

Fips Parcel is a malicious Trojan Horse that could corrupt your data and system, and exploit outdated software in order to download other viruses. Malware like Fips Parcel is oftentimes used for infecting more people with Ransomware.

Therefore, it is essential to remove the infection as soon as you detect it in order to prevent it from completing its job. The successful removal of a Trojan like Fips Parcel, however, could be rather challenging. That’s why our recommendation is use a detailed removal guide, such as the one below, and carefully follow its instructions. You may also need to use a specialized anti-malware tool or to update your existing antivirus program to deal with the threat effectively.

As far as prevention is concerned, make sure you never go to web sites that may be unreliable and that may contain questionable content. Stick to web locations you trust and keep away from spam, especially when it comes in emails with suspicious attachments or messages from unknown senders.
