Spam e-mail campaigns are everywhere and no matter how hard you may try to escape them, you will inevitably end up receiving an occasional spam letter in your e-mail inbox every now and then. Of course, most of the spam letters you may receive will typically be more of an annoyance rather than any actual threat to your computer’s safety. However, this may not always be the case as there are actually some rather sketchy and potentially malicious spam e-mail campaigns out there and if you become one of their many targets, it’s important to know how to react.

One very infamous form of web spam is the one where the user is sent a phishing e-mail that tells them a Trojan Horse virus has been nested in their system and is going to get activated in case the targeted victim does not obey to the demands of the letter’s sender. Normally, the demands involve the payment of a certain amount of money following provided instructions. If the demands are not met, the blackmailer may threaten to publicly distribute some sensitive information, photos, conversations and videos of the victim that have been acquired using the Trojan. In other cases, the threats may be as simple as telling the user that their computer system would get corrupted and all personal files in it deleted if the money doesn’t get sent. Blocking the credit/debit card of the user is also a possible threat that the scammers may make in order to extort money from their victims.

If you’ve been getting targeted by this type of unnerving online letters, we must let you know that paying the money demanded of you is probably the last thing you should do. For all you know, there may be no virus in your system (and there probably isn’t). And, in case you have actually had a Trojan (like the new 1L47wHe7FXWQ6pfPTbnykdX44FxQGstFeS Trojan) attack your computer, a much better way of dealing with it would be to follow our guide.

Some words about 1L47wHe7FXWQ6pfPTbnykdX44FxQGstFeS and the Trojan Horse threats in general

First and foremost, we must once again remind you that the type of messages that we went over at the start of this post are mostly scam letters intended to intimidate you and trick you into believing that your machine is indeed under attack. In reality, in most of the cases, the statements made in such e-mails are false and you should pay them no mind. However, since a Trojan threat like 1L47wHe7FXWQ6pfPTbnykdX44FxQGstFeS is not to be underestimated, it is still important to ensure that this malware is truly not in your computer. As we said, the right way to do that is by following the instructions in the guide from this page and not by paying money to the people who have been blackmailing you. After all, there’s nothing to keep them from further harassing you even after you pay them. If not sure about whether or not there’s a virus in your machine, we advise you to also try out the professional security program we’ve linked in the current write up.

  • 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

Type Regedit in the windows search field and press Enter.

Once inside, press CTRL and F together and type the virus’s Name. Right click and delete any entries you find with a similar name. If they don’t show up this way, go manually to these directories and delete/uninstall them:

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—–Random Directory. It could be any one of them – ask us if you can’t discern which ones are malicious.
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—-Windows—CurrentVersion—Run– Random
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—Internet Explorer—-Main—- Random
