The You better pay Email Scam will try to trick you into giving money to the hacker

A Trojan Horse is a harmful computer program designed to carry out different illegal tasks within the systems it infects. Unlike most other types of harmful computer software, the representatives of the Trojan Horse family can be used in different ways. If, for example, a Ransomware cryptovirus infects your system, what’s likely going to happen is that your files would get encrypted by it. However, the infection wouldn’t be able to do much else to your system. The same applies to most other kinds of malware, but not to the Trojan Horses. They are versatile malware threats, and they have all sorts of harmful abilities. If you land such a malware in your computer, you may not even realize it, or know what its goal is until it’s too late. Still, there are ways to counteract this type of infections, and in the next lines we will tell you more about that.

The You better pay me virus is a new Trojan Horse representative, and though there’s not too much information about it yet, there are still things we can tell you about this virus – about the way it operates, the damage it may cause to your computer and data, and about the things you can do in order to remove it from the infected machine.

One important thing to remember about You better pay me Email, and other similar threats (Drive by exploit, Recorded You), is that these Trojans seek to gain Administrative privileges in your computer. If they succeed in doing so, the access that they would have to your system’s settings, the data you keep in the machine, and the software that’s installed in it, would be nearly unlimited. Understandably, this would allow the malware to do all sorts of harmful things in the machine. Here are some examples to give you an idea about just how damaging a Trojan could be:

Trojans are oftentimes able to keep tabs on the activities you conduct in your computer, and thus gain sensitive personal information from your machine. For example, Many Trojans’ goal is to acquire your banking numbers, and online account details, and then use those for theft, fraud, blackmailing, and other types of harassment.

A Trojan may also fully take over your computer, and force the machine to carry out tasks for the hacker’s benefit. A common example is when a Trojan initiates a cryptocurrency mining process in the infected machine. In such cases, nearly all of the system resources get used to generate cryptocurrency revenue for the hackers, rendering the infected machine nearly unusable in the process.

Ransomware backdooring is another common way some Trojans could be used. A threat like You better pay me may secretly sneak a Ransomware cryptovirus in the infiltrated machine, and also block the antivirus, preventing it from detecting the malicious activity carried out by the Ransomware.

The examples we’ve just listed are only a small number of all the potential ways in which a Trojan can cause its harm. If you think You better pay me is present in your machine, and would like to remove it, we urge you to try the You better pay me removal guide from the current page, as it can help you rid your machine of the nasty malware.
