“Hello! I’m a hacker who cracked your email and device a few months ago. You entered a password on one of the sites you visited, and I intercepted it. Of course you can will change it, or already changed it. But it doesn’t matter, my malware updated it every time. Do not try to contact me or find me, it is impossible, since I sent you an email from your account. Through your email, I uploaded malicious code to your Operation System. I saved all of your contacts with friends, colleagues, relatives and a complete history of visits to the Internet resources. Also I installed a Trojan on your device and long tome spying for you. You are not my only victim, I usually lock computers and ask for a ransom. But I was struck by the sites of intimate content that you often visit.”

This is more than likely a scam, but it also shows that you indeed have some kind of malware on your device.

When talking about computer malware, understanding the nature of a given cyber threat is half the battle. The other half is successfully applying the acquired knowledge in the fight against the malware and keeping your computer safe from it. Now, on paper, this might sound easy but, of course, things are not as they seem and keeping your computer well protected at all times against different cyber threats might not always be possible. Even the most experienced and knowledgeable users might still make a mistake and have their machines attacked by some scary and malicious virus such as the recently detected 1DVU5Q2HQ4srFNSSaWBrVNMtL4pvBkfP5w. Here, this is exactly what we will be focusing on – the newly reported 1DVU5Q2HQ4srFNSSaWBrVNMtL4pvBkfP5w Trojan Horse malware program. In the next lines, we will tell you about what it might do to your machine, how it might infect/have infected it and what things you must keep an eye out for in the future in order to make sure that it never comes back after your remove it. Of course, we will also help you with the actual removal of the infection with our guide that you can read further down this page. But before we give you the guide, let use tell you something about…

After you open their folder, end the processes that are infected, then delete their folders.

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:

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

…what a Trojan Horse might do to your PC

The bad fame of those viruses partially comes from their ability to cause different kinds of harm once they manage to get inside the targeted computer. You can, of course, expect severe system damage, corruption of the PC Registry, deletion and corruption of important files but also distribution of Ransomware, Rootkits and other nasty threats, espionage over your activities on the computer and even remote control over the processes of your machine by the hackers who control the malware piece. Therefore, removing the infection ASAP is really your best (and only option)…

Do not underestimate the Trojans

Malicious pieces of malware like 1DVU5Q2HQ4srFNSSaWBrVNMtL4pvBkfP5w are also really stealthy and in many of the cases where they infect a given computer, they wouldn’t really show any symptoms. In some separate occasions, the user might notice an unusual increase in the RAM and CPU that are being used and there might also be occasional errors or frequent crashes but not all Trojans are known for that and even the ones that are might not always trigger such symptoms.

Also, the very infection is likely to happen with little to no visible red flags. In most cases, the malware would be presented to the user under the disguise of something that is supposed to look harmless – an online (spam) message, a downloadable file, a (fake) update request or something else. Though suspicious and potentially unsafe content is usually easy to spot and avoid, some Trojans hide better than others so this, combined with the general lack of symptoms, should be enough to convince you to get an antivirus program to keep your PC protected for those occasions when your vigilance might not be enough. And, if you already have an antivirus, then make sure to always update it when a new version is available.
