This page aims to help you remove 17v35QnAre7Vd2T74SD9xhEGJVwYfTPDhN Bitcoin Email Virus. Our removal instructions work for every version of Windows.

A new email BitCoin scam has been causing panic around the web lately. A number of web users have reported that they have had their email inbox spammed with a threatening message from a self-proclaimed hacker who asks them to pay a certain amount of money to a given BitCoin wallet. The crook claims that he has compromised the computer with hidden malware and has captured some sensitive information which he intends to make public if the victims refuse to transfer the required money. The scary message is clearly distributed with the intention to blackmail the web users and to trick them into making a ransom payment. Unfortunately, this email BitCoin scam not only tries to extort money in a very ruthless way but also could be related to the distribution of a real malware from the Trojan Horse family which goes under the name of 17v35QnAre7Vd2T74SD9xhEGJVwYfTPDhN Bitcoin Email. That’s why, in case you have recently interacted with a phishing message of this type  (other bitcoin wallets used by trojans include 13i31QoZKzo4DkB7ewHvFuHN5hDnztfRUe1GLvEgpHZxBMhkcoUXP69owPTbHs51mHGe) it is very important not to ignore it and carefully check your computer for hidden malware. It is perfectly possible that a threat like 17v35QnAre7Vd2T74SD9xhEGJVwYfTPDhN may now be lying dormant in the background without your knowledge and waiting for commands from the hackers.  Therefore, our suggestion is to run a full scan of your PC with a reliable and updated anti-malware tool and remove any threats that the security software detects.

The email users receive changes every few days for unknown reasons, possibly to throw off users looking for help on websites like ours. The current message displayed as of the time of this article says:

Hello,

I know your password: ***********

I infected your computer with my private malware some time ago.

It gave me full control over your computer, all your contacts and accounts, I can even turn your webcam and microphone on.

I collected all your private pictures, videos, contacts, everything!

I MADE A VIDEO showing you (through your webcam) WHILE MASTRUBATING!!!

What you think will happen, if everyone of your contacts, on social network, and everyone else will see all your private stuff togheter with my recorded videos of you?!

I think your life won’t be the same ever again!

I give you the chance to pay me 800$ with bitcoin.

Your wallet to receive and send bitcoin, you can create here: https://login.blockchain.com/en/#/signup/

My wallet is: 17v35QnAre7Vd2T74SD9xhEGJVwYfTPDhN

You know this all isn’t a joke!

You have 3 days time to get the bitcoins and pay me.

After payment, I will remove everything and you can live your life in peace like before…

If the scan results show no real malware in your system, then you have no reason to believe anything that the email BitCoin scam message states. In many cases, the hackers distribute fake messages that they use simply to bluff about existing malware with the idea to scare the web users into sending their money.

At the same time, you should always be careful with such phishing emails and spam messages because they are one of the favorite methods that the cyber criminals use to distribute nasty infections such as Ransomware, Spyware, and Trojans like 17v35QnAre7Vd2T74SD9xhEGJVwYfTPDhN. What is more, those infections typically show no visible symptoms and can secretly operate in the background of your system without your knowledge or until a fatal issue occurs or the hackers obtain access to your personal details.

A VirusTotal Report of an attachment coming with the email is detected positive by multiple antivirus programs. This is the trojan that uses 17v35QnAre7Vd2T74SD9xhEGJVwYfTPDhN  to extort victims:

Contamination with 17v35QnAre7Vd2T74SD9xhEGJVwYfTPDhN, for instance, may result in many different problems both for the system and for your personal safety.

They may also get their hands on any data that you store on the compromised machine, including photos, videos, audios, and different personal or work-related documents.
