“Recorded You” Email will try to trick you into giving money to the hacker

There are many things that can go wrong with a computer system, and in a big portion of the cases, the issue would in one way or another be related to a Trojan Horse infection, as this is one of the most commonly faced forms of malware, that can be used for the completion of a wide variety of cyber crimes. Here, we will be telling you about a threat called “Recorded You”. This Trojan is a dangerous a newly-released piece of malware and anyone who has it on their computer should quickly fond a way to get rid of the infection. In this post, you will find a potential method of eliminating the threat – a removal guide with manual steps on what you must do to eradicate the nasty infection, and, in case the guide isn’t enough, a professional tool for removing unwanted and malicious programs. It’s your choice whether to use only the guide, only the tool, or both of the removal options. Just make sure that “Recorded You” isn’t allowed to reside in your system for any extended periods of time, otherwise, the consequences of its stay in your machine could be quite unpleasant.

Speaking of the possible consequences of the infection with a Trojan Horse

One of the top reasons why infections with Trojan Horses are such a commonplace has to do with the infamous versatility of those malware programs. As long as the Trojan has elevated privileges in the infected system, it may be capable of carrying out all kinds of nasty activities. We are talking about spying on its victims’ activities, stealing their credit or debit card info, accessing their personal files, their online profiles and even private conversations as well as inserting Rootkits, Ransomware, and other additional malicious programs inside the already compromised system. Something that many Trojan Horses have in common is that they create what’s known as botnets. A botnet is a big network comprised of computers that have been infected and are under the control of the same Trojan. The hackers behind the Trojan can task the machines that comprise the botnet to carry out tasks that require the use of a large number of machines. Most commonly, such tasks are cryptomining, Denial of Service attack campaigns, large-scale spam e-mail campaigns and so on. We do not yet know whether or not “Recorded You” has a botnet of its own, but it is possible. If your machine is being remotely controlled by a Trojan that has added it to its botnet, the computer is likely to become extremely sluggish and experience errors or even BSOD crashes due to excessive use of system resources. Even if those symptoms aren’t present, however, if “Recorded You” is inside your computer, then you must definitely use the guide that we offer you on this page to remove the threatening program. As we have hopefully made it clear, an infection with a Trojan like “Recorded You” can be very troubling and have repercussions not only in your virtual life, but in your real life as well.
