The web space can be very dangerous as it often hides different types of computer threats. There are programs such as Ransomware cryptoviruses which could secretly lock-up your data by encrypting it and later using this as a blackmailing leverage. There are also insidious programs like the representatives of the Spyware category which may target your personal information and try to steal it in order to blackmail or harass you in some other way. In this post, we will tell you about one very dangerous infection which goes under the name of 14tfS3yWL2cABhXVJZ97XRhuDXC69aWH6Y. This threat belongs to the infamous Trojan Horse family and it may be related to a BitCoin e-mail scam scheme which is asking the victims to pay ransom to a specific BitCoin wallet. The email that may deliver this infection follows a simple blackmail scenario. The victim receives a phishing email sent from a self-proclaimed hacker, who states that the computer has been compromised by a hidden Trojan malware. The hacker behind it claims that they have acquired some sensitive personal information related to the victim (typically personal videos, photos, other details, conversations and passwords, etc.) which they will publish online or delete from the computer if a ransom payment does not get paid. In case that you’ve landed on this page because you have recently received an email with similar harassing statements, you should know that these statements are oftentimes nothing but a ruse, a bluff which is supposed to trick the users into paying a ransom. However, apart from tricking the victims, these messages could also be used to deliver an actual malware piece such as 14tfS3yWL2cABhXVJZ97XRhuDXC69aWH6Y Bitcoin Email inside the system. That’s why, in case you have opened and interacted with such a message, it is a good idea to carefully scan your computer with a trusted antivirus tool and remove anything potentially malicious. In the event that the scan detects 14tfS3yWL2cABhXVJZ97XRhuDXC69aWH6Y on your PC, below, you will find detailed instructions on how to remove the infection and double check your system for other hidden threats.

The Trojan-based infections are very problematic.

Most Trojans are normally quite difficult to deal with. They are very stealthy and can infect you without showing any symptoms. What is more, you can never be sure what they will do to your system and where they may hide. That’s why even an experienced user may get tricked by a Trojan like 14tfS3yWL2cABhXVJZ97XRhuDXC69aWH6Y and its camouflaged transmitters and may get their computer infected without knowing it. Unfortunately, unlike phishing emails like the ones related to 14tfS3yWL2cABhXVJZ97XRhuDXC69aWH6Y Email, which are normally rather easy to recognize, many of the potential Trojan Horse carriers cannot be detected without reliable antivirus software. And if not removed on time, those threats may seriously damage the OS. For instance, they may corrupt, replace and modify important system or sensitive personal files, mess with the basic system processes, spy on you and steal sensitive information about you, your personal life, your online profiles, your work, banking details and other data, and all this could later be used to harass you in all kinds of ways. For this reason, you should carefully check your system for the hidden presence of 14tfS3yWL2cABhXVJZ97XRhuDXC69aWH6Y Bitcoin Email and immediately remove it in case you detect it.
