  • Once in the File Location folder for the suspicious process, start testing all of the files that are stored there by dragging them to our free online scanner available below.

    What is You-rabbit.com?

    This type of malware is used for spying on the targeted victim with the goal to collect some form of sensitive information. Depending on what the collected data is, it could be used in different ways. For instance, if the virus has acquired your banking details, this may allow the hackers to silently drain your bank accounts. The primary objective of this malevolent add-on is to pilfer cryptocurrency from unsuspecting victims and transfer it to the wallet controlled by the threat actors.
    Furthermore, being a browser add-on, it can be installed on various platforms that support Chromium-based browsers. While the installation process of this malicious add-on and the infection chain outlined in this article pertain specifically to Windows, it can be effortlessly adapted by the threat actors to target Linux and macOS users, as long as the victims employ Chromium-based browsers. In other cases, if the Trojan has gotten to some personal details about you, the hackers may blackmail you for a ransom payment by threatening you that those details may be sent to everybody who knows you.


    Is You-rabbit dangerous?

    One of the most common Trojan horse uses is when You-rabbit.com, Fractureiser or another similar virus takes over the whole system and starts launching different processes in the computer without your permission. Usually, those processes are aimed at mining Bitcoins (or other cryptocurrencies) for the hackers or at targeting other users with spam messages to further spread the virus.
