    Is Look Who Died in an Accident message a virus?

    Money extortion is just one of the follow-up to the fact that your device has been compromised by a Trojan that is secretly transferring your information to people with malicious intentions. If they get their hands on your credit or debit card details, they may empty your bank accounts ballances before you even known it.
    However, espionage is not the only way to employ such a virus. Trojans such as “Look Who Died in an Accident” are also used to distribute other malicious programs to the victims’ machines. Thanks to their backdooring ability, these threats may insert root kits, Ransomware cryptoviruses, different phishing applications and spyware into the system without the knowledge of the victim. They may also block the existing security program from doing its job in order to allow other malware to slip in.


    Is Look Who Died in an Accident message dangerous?


    Sometimes, the Trojan infections may obtain administrative rights over the OS and use them to trigger a variety of resource-intensive processes on the attacked device. In such situations, the victims may experience a significant slowdown of the device’s speed and even crashes, screen-freezing issues, or other software and system disruptions and errors, most of which may be a result from the Trojan’s excessive system resources exploitation.
    Sadly, in most of the cases, there will be no visible symptoms of the harmful activities that threats like “Look Who Died in an Accident” are performing. That’s why your best chances to detect and remove the malware on time is to use a reliable antivirus program that can scan your entire device.
    Fight the virus
    If you haven’t been notified of this hazard on time by your antivirus, then this might be due to the inability of the security program to detect the Trojan in its virus definition databases. Indeed, it may take some time for new threats like “Look Who Died in an Accident” to be added to the virus databases of security programs and during that time, they may be invisible for the antivirus apps. That’s why, in such as scenario, it’s better to use a manual removal guide such as the one that you can find below and maybe update your anti-malware tool with a more-robust one that can remove “Look Who Died in an Accident” immediately.
