This page aims to help you remove the 1ES14c7qLb5CYhLMUekctxLgc1FV2Ti9DA virus. 1ES14c7qLb5CYhLMUekctxLgc1FV2Ti9DA is the bitcoin wallet used to run a trojan scam that displays the following message to users:

To recover your lost code and avoid leaking it: Send us 0.1 Bitcoin (BTC) to our Bitcoin address 1ES14c7qLb5CYhLMUekctxLgc1FV2Ti9DA and contact us by Email at [email protected] with your Git login and a Proof of Payment. If you are unsure if we have your data, contact us and we will send you a proof. Your code is downloaded and backed up on our servers. If we dont receive your payment in the next 10 Days, we will make your code public or use them otherwise.

If the users do not send the requested amount to [email protected] however, they become a target later on due to the hack which allowed the crook their personal data in the first place.

There are many ways to get scammed on the Internet and one of the most common ones is by trusting random spam and phishing e-mails that get sent to your e-mail address. There could be all sorts of lies written in such letters, all aimed at tricking you in one way or another. For instance, you may get told that your debit or credit card has been blocked and you now have to provide its number and expiration date to have it unblocked. Or, you may get told that you’ve won some kind of prize and now must provide your online banking details in order to receive the said prize. In the current article, we will tell you about one other recently detected spam e-mail scam where the users are threatened that a hidden Trojan in their computer would do something bad unless a BitCoin ransom is paid to the cryptocurrency wallet of the blackmailer. This is actually a rather common occurrence where users receive such letters and if you are currently one of those users, you must know what the best course of action is.

Regarding the ransom and the potential threat on your computer

The first thing to remember about such scam schemes is that paying the money that has been requested is usually one of the worst things that you can do. This is because, even if there is a virus or a Trojan in your computer, there is no guarantee that the malware would go away if you pay. Another thing to mention is the fact that there would usually be no actual infection in the computer. The scammers normally try to scare their victims through bluffs and false statements. They may tell you that an advanced malware infection (such as the recently released 1ES14c7qLb5CYhLMUekctxLgc1FV2Ti9DA) has entered your system and may damage it or carry out some other nasty task such as gather sensitive info from your computer and send it to the people from your contacts list. However, unless there are some actual indications that there may be malware in your machine, there is no reason to trust the blackmailer’s statements made in the threatening message, nor is there a reason to pay anything.

But what if 1ES14c7qLb5CYhLMUekctxLgc1FV2Ti9DA or another virus is indeed in the computer?

Since the Trojan Horse infections like 1ES14c7qLb5CYhLMUekctxLgc1FV2Ti9DA are very sneaky threats and are difficult to notice, even if you do not see any particular infection symptoms, this doesn’t necessarily mean that your machine is safe. This is why some precaution measures need to be taken in order to make sure your system isn’t threatened. Again, paying the ransom isn’t a good option. Instead, what you should do is try the suggested removal steps you will see below. You can also use the tool for removing malware that has been linked in the guide for additional help with detecting and eliminating any potential hazards like 1ES14c7qLb5CYhLMUekctxLgc1FV2Ti9DA. Just bear in mind that there really is no need or sense in trusting the people who are harassing you in such ways, even if 1ES14c7qLb5CYhLMUekctxLgc1FV2Ti9DA or another virus is present in your machine, there are much better ways to deal with it than paying money to the anonymous crooks behind this blackmailing scheme.
