The “I work as a Private Investigator” Email spam

Trojans are generally considered to be among the most devastating and harmful type of malicious code out there. But because “I work as a Private Investigator” is still so new, at the time of writing, we do not yet have sufficient data to state specifically what this virus is meant to do on the computers of its victims.

One thing is for sure, though, and that is that “I work as a Private Investigator” must be removed immediately (see removal guide below). It will certainly be up to no good, and it’s just a matter of the level of damage that its activities can result in for you. Trojans are particularly versatile, unlike most other types of malware. And this fact has contributed to this becoming the most numerous and infamous type of computer viruses.

Many of our users reported to us about an ongoing email spam with the following message:

Hello, I work as a Private Investigator. Our agency received a case with an objective of hacking into your email, phone, cloud storage, network and collecting intelligence. We work with hackers from China for tasks like that, and they are the best. As you can see, they did a good job. Your accounts and devices are compromised. But we do have an ethical protocol in place. After checking the background of the person who paid for the hacking and investigation on you, I have decided to come forward and offer you to buy the information about that person (name, contacts, emails and other proof). You will also get a report on yourself (including a list of compromised accounts, devices, logs, screenshots, photos and documents). Normally, we do not disclose sensitive information about our clients, but in this case we will be. Upon reviewing this case, I found that something illegal was planned against you. The materials we have collected on you are very sensitive and can be easily used to blackmail you. We usually address personal and corporate espionage cases, but this case is different. We have received a prepayment of 50% for your case from that person (total agreed upon cost was 12500 USD). However, I will give you a discount (without any profit for the agency), if you decide to buy this information. After we get the payment, I will get back to you. You have 2 business days to make the transfer. It will cost you 40% of the unpaid balance. We will process $2,500 payment through bitcoin. In case you have trouble with bitcoin, google how to fund it.

We can give you a general idea of what Trojan horses like “I work as a Private Investigator”, JSAgent.HTM, SAntivirusKD.sys are capable of, so you have at least a ballpark understanding of what you might be facing.

For instance, Trojans can be put to work to exploit the resource of your system. This, in turn, may be done for various purposes, such as the very common practice of mining bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Alternatively, your computer may be involved in botnets for the execution of DDoS attacks or spam distribution.

Another very widespread usage of Trojans like “I work as a Private Investigator” has to do with spying and stealing information from users. This can be personal details, account credentials, financial information – you name it. And the way the obtained data can be misused can vary based on what the hackers’ intentions are. The techniques by which this information can be collected also vary greatly from one another. They can range from keystroke logging and unauthorized screen sharing to hijacking your traffic and rerouting it through the hackers’ servers. The possibilities are all but endless.

Distribution tactics

One of the best ways to protect yourself from Trojans and any type of external threats is by knowing how they get distributed. If you can avoid a potential source of malware, then you are greatly diminishing your chances of landing an infection.

So, with Trojans, the possible transmitters are also fairly diverse. But the most common ones include phishing emails and various forms of spam messages. These can come in every shape and size, yet the one thing they all tend to have in common is that they will try and persuade you to follow a link or open an attachment. Be on the lookout for these and do not interact with such messages unless you have ascertained that they can be trusted.

Another fairly common source is malvertising. This is the process of inserting malicious code in online ads. And here we would simply suggest to refrain from clicking on ads on the internet in general, because there’s really no way to tell a legitimate advertising message from one that can land you a virus.
