“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. This is your password from [email protected] on moment of hack: xxxx Of course you can will change it, or already changed it. But it doesn’t matter, my malware updated it every time. …. I am in shock of your fantasies! I’ve never seen anything like this! So, when you had fun on piquant sites (you know what I mean!) I made screenshot with using my program from your camera of yours device. After that, I combined them to the content of the currently viewed site. There will be laughter when I send these photos to your contacts! BUT I’m sure you don’t want it. Therefore, I expect payment from you for my silence. I think $814 is an acceptable price for it! Pay via Bitcoin. My BTC wallet: 1GcwYRfWesiSe2fBmsVSpNG2K11zDMhksG …..”

The dangers you could face with a Trojan virus inside your PC

Something that sets apart Trojan viruses from most other kinds of malware is their versatility. Other threats like Spyware, Ransomware and Rootkits have rather specific tasks and abilities and they usually have a limited number of possible uses. On the other hand, a Trojan might have a number of different purposes and capabilities and sometimes it might even get reprogrammed on the go. Damaging the system and corrupting essential data are only some of the things Trojans can do. Spying on you, controlling the processes of your PC, stealing information from your HDDs and so on and so forth – the list goes on and on. It is therefore essential that you remove the threat immediately after you notice its presence.

We really can’t go over all the potential ways in which a given Trojan Horse might be able to cause harm to you and to your PC as there are just so many possibilities. This is also why we can’t tell you for sure what 1GcwYRfWesiSe2fBmsVSpNG2K11zDMhksG might be intended to do in your particular case. What we can tell you, however, is that you need to act quickly and without hesitation before the virus has managed to fulfil its purpose!

How to stay protected against Trojans in the future

Those sneaky threats are really difficult to notice and can get distributed in many different ways. Hackers oftentimes use spam letters with the malware attached to them or misleading update requests that are actually fake and would link you to the virus if you click on them. Pirated programs and games are another favourite tool of cyber criminals to spread malware programs like 1GcwYRfWesiSe2fBmsVSpNG2K11zDMhksG. Therefore, aside from constantly being watchful, you should also install an antivirus tool on your computer so as to get that extra layer of protection against a potential Trojan Horse attack.
