This page aims to help you remove “On this day i hacked your os and got full access to your account”. Our removal instructions work for every version of Windows.

Typically, if you receive a phishing e-mail in which you are told that there’s a Trojan Horse virus in your PC and that if you do not pay a set amount of money (usually in BitCoins) to the sender of the e-mail, they will use the Trojan to harm your computer or collect some sensitive data from it and then publish it online, similar to this one:
“I have very bad news for you. 03/08/2018 – on this day I hacked your OS and got full access to your account xxxxxxx On this day your account xxxxxxx has password: xxxxxxx So, you can change the password, yes.. But my malware intercepts it every time.” [… technical nonsense here …] “And I got an idea…. I made a screenshot of the adult sites where you have fun (do you understand what it is about, huh?). After that, I made a screenshot of your joys (using the camera of your device) and glued them together. Turned out amazing! You are so spectacular! I’m know that you would not like to show these screenshots to your friends, relatives or colleagues. I think $760 is a very, very small amount for my silence. Besides, I have been spying on you for so long, having spent a lot of time! Pay ONLY in Bitcoins! My BTC wallet: 1FgfdebSqbXRciP2DXKJyqPSffX3Sx57RF”

First and foremost, in most instances, such statements about a virus currently residing in your system would usually be a ruse. For that reason, it is highly inadvisable to send anything to the linked Bitcoin wallet available in the threatening message.

Secondly, it is pretty much always a much more sensible course of action to scan your computer for any actual threats and remove anything suspicious you might find instead of blindly believing what the scammer who’s harassing you claims in their e-mail.

Some words about “On this day i hacked your os and got full access to your account”

While the sole fact that you have been send an intimidating ransom-demanding message in your e-mail inbox doesn’t mean that you do indeed have a Trojan like “On this day i hacked your os and got full access to your account” in your computer, it is still important to ensure that your PC is secure as this type of malicious programs are truly some of the worst.

The same applies for downloading pirated programs and visiting unreliable and sketchy sites. And if you do get a Trojan such as “On this day i hacked your os and got full access to your account” on your PC, the malware piece might be able to ruin your system by corrupting important system data or by messing with the Registry (among other things). It might also sneak Ransomware and Rootkits inside your computer and/or spy on you. Sometimes, a Trojan might even allow the hackers to directly access your PC and control what’s happening in it. All in all, security should always come first and that is why we have posted our guide above.
