The Internet is full of dishonest people who would gladly take your money by tricking you on some way if given the chance. There are numerous types of online schemes that are used to extort big amounts of money from the more gullible and from the ones that are easily-deceived . One very common money extortion scheme is the one that uses threatening phishing e-mails to lure the targeted victims into sending money to the blackmailer in hopes of saving their computers from a supposed malware infection.

Recently, we have received reports about an increase of the cases in which such type of scam scheme gets used to trick more and more web users. This is how it all normally goes: the victim is sent a spam e-mail, stating that their computer has been attacked by a Trojan Horse virus that is now lying dormant in the machine, waiting to attack the computer. If the user refuses to issue a ransom payment to the blackmailer, the latter would activate the Trojan and would use it for something malicious. This is where the actual threat may differ. Sometimes, the user may be told that the virus has gathered sensitive info about them and that the said info would be send to all of the victim’s contacts. In other cases, the threat may be that the infection would harm the computer system to the point where the machine could no longer be used. It’s also possible that the blackmailers tell you that they have access to your banking accounts and will drain them and/or block your credit/debit card. In most such cases, however, claims like that are nothing but a bluff. Still, even if you believe there may indeed be a hidden Trojan in your computer such as the new 1H1K8MfLEJgjCCfDEkTJmv9GJjD3XzEFGR malware program, it’s much better to try to remove it yourself instead of opting for the payment. To help you with the removal of any potential infection with 1H1K8MfLEJgjCCfDEkTJmv9GJjD3XzEFGR, we’ve prepared a guide that you will see below:

This Trojan really is something you need to be careful with if it’s inside your computer. We do not mean to instill panic in you and we definitely do not advise you to trust any of the claims made in phishing e-mails such as the ones we described above. The only reason we are telling you about the danger that 1H1K8MfLEJgjCCfDEkTJmv9GJjD3XzEFGR and other similar Trojans represent is in order to ensure you take the necessary precautions to keep your computer out of harm. Again, even if you’ve received such a blackmailing e-mail and even if you suspect your machine may actually have been infected, it’s still a bad idea to opt for the ransom transfer. Instead, use the steps from the guide in this article and also maybe consider scanning your machine with the security tool linked on this page as this is a much more reliable way of cleaning your computer from any potential malware hazards compared to sending big amounts of money to shady and anonymous online figures.

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