Dealing with a Trojan Horse on your PC or Mac computer can be a real challenge even to an experienced and knowledgeable user which is why most people get intimidated when they get (or think they have gotten) such a malicious program on their computer. This “fear factor” is something that a lot of online scammers use in order to trick their targeted victims to pay them money. Usually, it all goes something like this: a scam/phishing e-mail is send to the targeted user in which it is stated that the user’s machine has been compromised by a dangerous Trojan virus and that if a ransom isn’t paid to the hacker, they’d use the malware to damage the system of the PC or publish online some sensitive private information about the user. Normally, a BitCoin wallet is linked in the e-mail which is where the users are supposed to pay the money.
Of course, receiving such a message is likely to startle the majority of users – especially the ones who are not too experienced or the ones that are more naive. Regardless, if you are reading this and have been a target of such a phishing e-mail scam, then remember that paying the requested money is not the advisable course of action. In many cases, the statements about a virus in your system are nothing but a bluff and there’s really not anything wrong with your machine. Still, it is very important that you check your system for anything suspicious and potentially dangerous.
