Norton LifeLock Email Scam

A new popular email scam which asks the victims to pay a certain amount of money to a specific wallet, has recently been spreading around the web. Security experts state that this particular scam is, in most cases, not directly threatening to the computer’s safety but it could still sometimes be potentially linked to the distribution of a nasty Trojan horse infection called Norton LifeLock Email Scam.

What is the Norton LifeLock email scam in general?


After checking the “Norton LifeLock” email, our specialists found it to be fake and not affiliated with either NortonLifeLock Inc. or PayPal Holdings, Inc.

This fraudulent email was presented as an invoice for a successful purchase stating that the payment had already been processed. The goal is to make the recipients believe and be tricked into calling the number provided to cancel the fraudulent payment/subscription. The goal is most likely so that the fraudsters can gain remote access to the victims’ devices. This way they can gain access to their sensitive information, such as their bank accounts.

    Step3

     

    Hold together the Start Key and R. Type appwiz.cpl –> OK.

    Step4

     

    Type msconfig in the search field and hit enter. A window will pop-up:

    msconfig_opt

     

    Startup —> Uncheck entries that have “Unknown” as Manufacturer or otherwise look suspicious.

    • Remember this step – if you have reason to believe a bigger threat (like ransomware) is on your PC, check everything here.

    Hold the Start Key and R –  copy + paste the following and click OK:

    notepad %windir%/system32/Drivers/etc/hosts

    A new file will open. If you are hacked, there will be a bunch of other IPs connected to you at the bottom. Look at the image below:

    hosts_opt (1)

     

    If there are suspicious IPs below “Localhost” – write to us in the comments.

    Type Regedit in the windows search field and press Enter.

    Once inside, press CTRL and F together and type the virus’s Name. Right click and delete any entries you find with a similar name. If they don’t show up this way, go manually to these directories and delete/uninstall them:

      HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—-Windows—CurrentVersion—Run– Random
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—Internet Explorer—-Main—- Random
