Some of our readers reported an email written in Hungarian that they have received, with the following message:
I am sorry to inform you that your device was compromised. I’ll explain what led to all of this. I have used a Zero Day vulnerability with a special code to infect your device through a website. This is a complicated software that requires precise skills that I have. It works as a chain with specially crafted and unique code and that’s why this type of an attack can go undetected. You only need one not patched vulnerability to be infected, and unfortunately for you – it works that simple. You were not targeted specifically, but just became one of the quite a few unlucky people who got hacked that day. All of this happened a few month ago. So I’ve had time to collect information on you. I think you already know what is going to happen next. During that time, my software was quietly collecting information about your habits, websites that you visit, searches you do, texts you send. There is more to it, but I have listed a few reasons for you to understand how serious this is. For you to clearly understand, my software controlled your camera and microphone as well and it was impossible for you to know about it. It was just about right timing for me to get you privacy violated. I’ve been waiting enough and have decided that it’s time to put an end to this. So here is my offer. Let’s name this a “consulting fee” I need to delete the media content I have been collecting. Your privacy stays untouched, if I get the payment. Otherwise, I will leak the most damaging content to your contacts and post it to a public tube for perverts to explore. I only care about getting paid. My modest consulting fee is 1650 US Dollars transferred in Bitcoin. Exchange rate at the time of the transfer. You need to send that amount to this wallet: 1NGCsGqSdNEKpptQ4DKbJEva59cTSk369o The fee is non negotiable, to be transferred within 2 business days. We use Bitcoin to protect my identity.
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 1NGCsGqSdNEKpptQ4DKbJEva59cTSk369o, 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 1NGCsGqSdNEKpptQ4DKbJEva59cTSk369o, “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 1NGCsGqSdNEKpptQ4DKbJEva59cTSk369o
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 1NGCsGqSdNEKpptQ4DKbJEva59cTSk369o ASAP!
Some threats reinstall themselves if you don't delete their core files. We recommend downloading SpyHunter to remove harmful programs for you. This may save you hours and ensure you don't harm your system by deleting the wrong files.
