Some of our readers reported an email written in Polish that they have received, with the following message:
Desafortunadamente, tengo mas noticias para ti. Hace varios meses, tuve acceso al dispositivo que esta utilizando para navegar por Internet. Desde entonces, he estado monitoreando su actividad en Internet. Como visitante habitual de sitios para adultos, puedo confirmar que usted es responsable de esto. Para simplificar las cosas, los sitios web que ha visitado me han proporcionado acceso a sus datos. Cargue un caballo de Troya basado en el controlador que actualiza su firma varias veces al dia, para que sea imposible que el antivirus lo detecte. Ademas, me da acceso a su camara y microfono. Ademas, hice una copia de seguridad de todos los datos, incluidas fotos, redes sociales, chats y contactos. Recientemente, tuve una idea increible de crear el video que disfrutas en una parte de la pantalla, mientras el video se reproducia simultaneamente en otra pantalla. !Fue divertido! Asegurese de que pueda enviar facilmente este video a todos sus contactos con solo unos pocos clics, y supongo que le gustaria evitar este escenario. Con eso en mente, aqui esta mi propuesta: transfiera la cantidad equivalente a 1300 USD a mi billetera Bitcoin y me olvidare de todo. Tambien eliminare permanentemente todos los datos y videos. En mi opinion, este es un precio algo modesto por mi trabajo. Puedes averiguar como comprar Bitcoins usando buscadores como Google o Bing, ya que no es muy dificil. Mi billetera Bitcoin (BTC): 1F34gHWdSXVnN5zy5mA7gEaKgeu8NGPHCw Tiene 48 horas para responder y tambien debe tener en cuenta lo siguiente Tampoco tiene sentido quejarse, ya que no se puede rastrear la carta junto con mi billetera Bitcoin. Todo fue orquestado con precision. Si detecto que mencionaste algo sobre esta carta a alguien, el video se compartira de inmediato y tus contactos seran los primeros en recibirlo. !Entonces el video se publicara en la web! !Buena suerte y tomatelo con calma! Fue solo mala suerte, la proxima vez, ten cuidado.
There are many different kinds of Trojan Horse viruses – some target your system data, some try to spy on you, some seek to steal sensitive info from your computer and online accounts and some might even be used to silently download other harmful programs the likes of Ransomware and Rootkits on the infected computer. Here, however, we will be focusing on a specific type of e-mail Trojans that are used in phishing e-mail campaigns, which have recently become quite widespread and currently there are a lot of users who have fallen victims to these threats. One example of such a phishing e-mail Trojan Horse virus is 1F34gHWdSXVnN5zy5mA7gEaKgeu8NGPHCw, which will be the main topic of this article. If you have recently noticed some obscure e-mails in your inbox that claim you need to pay a certain amount of BitCoins or something bad would happen, then you likely have 1F34gHWdSXVnN5zy5mA7gEaKgeu8NGPHCw, “Drive by exploit” or “Save Yourself” inside your computer. In order to increase the chances of the scam being successful and make their e-mails be more threatening, the criminals behind this scheme usually claim that your PC has been hacked and that if you do not pay, something bad will happen to the machine. In their e-mails, the scammers might claim that some sensitive information about the user has been acquired by them and that it would be made publicly available online in order to scare the user into paying. This is somewhat similar to the way Ransomware cryptoviruses try to intimidate users into sending money to the hackers by claiming that the user’s files would stay locked if the money isn’t paid. However, the difference here is that the scammers are only bluffing and they don’t actually have any actual leverage over you.
Some more words about 1F34gHWdSXVnN5zy5mA7gEaKgeu8NGPHCw
The problem with having this Trojan which might potentially be inside your computer isn’t solely related to the phishing e-mails you are likely to receive if the infection has reached you. A more experienced and discerning user would easily spot the scam and ignore and delete the phishing letter. However, since the Trojan is still in the PC and because this type of malware is actually highly versatile, the malicious program might still be used to carry out some other insidious and harmful task inside the targeted machine. We already mentioned some of the common uses of a typical Trojan Horse virus at the start of this article. Note that some Trojans could get remotely repurposed to do something different from their initial task after they have already attacked a certain computer. This means that even if you do not fall for the e-mail scam, your PC and your virtual security and privacy are still not going to be safe if the malware doesn’t get removed. The sooner you ensure that all malicious data has been removed from your computer, the less time the malware would have to do some other nasty thing to your computer. Therefore, we advise you to act quickly and use the guide from this page and/or the removal tool attached to it and get rid of 1F34gHWdSXVnN5zy5mA7gEaKgeu8NGPHCw ASAP!
