If you have landed on this page because you have received a strange blackmailing email from a self-proclaimed hacker, who claims that they have compromised your computer with a secret malware, then you most probably have become one of the numerous victims of a viral BitCoin phishing email scam. The premise of this scam usually goes like this: a hacker sends you an informative email message where they tell you that they have acquired some sensitive information about you and maybe even that they have been spying on you through your webcam and mic with the help of a hidden Trojan Horse virus that’s currently in your computer. Then, the crook asks for a ransom payment that needs to be sent to a specific BitCoin wallet and threatens that if you don’t fulfill the ransom demands, they will use the acquired information against you. Recently, thousands of web users have been receiving similar phishing messages in their email inbox and have been getting blackmailed to send money to the hackers behind the scheme. The security experts, however, inform that most emails with such content are nothing but a scam, the sole aim of which is to scare the web users and to extort their money. Therefore, the security researchers do not advise to send any payments to anyone. What our “How to remove” team would highly recommend that you to do as an added precaution, however, is to carefully check your system for any potential hidden infections because, sometimes, nasty malware inside your system may be the reason behind receiving such blackmailing messages. The main reason we advise you to do this is because we have recently learned about the release of one new and particularly nasty Trojan Horse infection named 14DvFghvkzQujf5Kd5AL2VKjxaYm5KidxR, which could be used to spy on you and steal your personal data in order to blackmail you in the way described in the above-mentioned phishing emails. That’s why, if you have interacted with a scam email lately, it is a good idea to run a full scan of your machine with a reliable antimalware tool (such as the one on this page) and rule out the possibility of an actual infection with 14DvFghvkzQujf5Kd5AL2VKjxaYm5KidxR or with some other malware.

In case that the system scan detects 14DvFghvkzQujf5Kd5AL2VKjxaYm5KidxR in your system, don’t panic. We have assembled a detailed removal guide above which can help you to effectively remove this infection from your computer. It is very important, however, to deal with 14DvFghvkzQujf5Kd5AL2VKjxaYm5KidxR as quickly as possible and use a reliable anti-malware scanner that can help you locate and delete all the hidden malicious files because if you leave a Trojan like this one on your computer or fail to correctly remove it, its effects on your system could be really, really unpleasant. Not only may you get all your personal information exposed and sent to the hands of some unscrupulous hackers, but you may lose important data and software and may need to reinstall the entire Operating System in order to fix the PC issues which this malware may create. After all, most representatives of the Trojan Horse family are very versatile and can launch many different criminal activities. That’s why our advice is to carefully scan your entire PC and use the instructions above to remove 14DvFghvkzQujf5Kd5AL2VKjxaYm5KidxR or any other hidden malware which you may detect in your system.
