I have also access to all your contacts, I collected everything private from you, pictures, videos, everything! 
And I MADE A VIDEO SHOWING BOTH YOU (through your webcam) AND THE VIDEO YOU WERE WATCHING (on the screen) WHILE STATISFYING YOURSELF!

One of the biggest challenges when it comes to Trojan Horse infections is the timely detection and the successful removal of the hidden malicious code from the system. In most of the cases, the victims only come to know about the infection when it is too late because most infections of this type have a whole arsenal of tactics that help them to remain hidden and to operate in the background of the system without getting noticed. One recently reported Trojan-based threat which is known for its extremely stealthy tactics and its ability to operate without visible symptoms is called 1HB3KtKoguFuZ4BdmCv9Fc4tYTwDQgmqmW Bitcoin Email. This threat is spreading around the web with the help of various shady carriers but most and is sometimes detected inside phishing emails and scam messages.

If you are on this page, you either have a suspicious that this Trojan has compromised your computer or you have been getting spammed with a BitCoin ransom-demanding email message that claims you have been compromised by a hidden malware that will do something bad if you refuse to pay. In either case, here, you will find professional help against 1HB3KtKoguFuZ4BdmCv9Fc4tYTwDQgmqmW and important information about this strange BitCoin scam that has recently become quite widespread. Below, you will find instructions on how to check your computer for this Trojan-based infection and remove it as well as some more clarifications about the blackmailing scheme that stands behind the spam emails in your inbox.

The BitCoin scam

In case a self-proclaimed hacker has recently sent you a message which states that he has been monitoring you with the help of a hidden malware that has nested inside your system, then there are two possibilities – you either have been spammed with a phishing BitCoin scam email that aims to extort money from you through a bluff regarding the presence of a trojan infection in your computer, or you have really been infected with something nasty without knowing it. The best way to know what exactly is happening is to run a full system scan with a reliable and updated security software and see what it detects. The reason is, there are too many scam message campaigns out there that can claim different things – from having obtained sensitive information from your computer to having hacked your webcam and mic or having copied your passwords and accounts. However, there is absolutely no need to trust everything they state or send money to some anonymous hackers. At the same time, if you have already heard about the stealthiness of Trojans like 1HB3KtKoguFuZ4BdmCv9Fc4tYTwDQgmqmW, then you know that they can be distributed with the help of spam and phishing emails and you should carefully check your system in case that you have had an interaction with such content. And while most of the email spam may be nothing but bluffs that could easily be ignored, it is always a good idea to run a full scan of the OS with good security software. There are many great and reliable anti-malware tools and scanners out there and one of them is the removal tool we’ve posted in the guide below.  If you don’t have a professional anti-malware program, you may give a try to the one we have included here and you can even use it to remove Trojans like 1HB3KtKoguFuZ4BdmCv9Fc4tYTwDQgmqmW safely and effectively if they get found in your system.
