In this article, we will tell you about a Trojan Horse virus related to a phishing e-mail scam that has recently affected a lot of PC users and the number of its victim is likely only going to go up in the next days and weeks. The Trojan that we are going to be focusing on is called 1GxvqXKNy3aEU3K94vTk67rwcFiwq48PYY and if you have had your PC infected by it, then you have likely received some obscure and suspicious e-mails after the malware has gotten inside the computer. The said e-mails usually include a payment request which states that you need to send a certain amount of money to a linked BitCoin wallet. The premise under which you are supposed to pay the requested money could be anything – oftentimes, the scammers might try to scare you claiming that they have hacked inside your PC and have acquired some sensitive information about you and are now blackmailing through claiming that they’d release the said info and make it public if you do not pay. All sorts of fake statements might be provided in the phishing e-mail in attempts to trick more gullible users into issuing the payment. Note, however, that if you have recently received such an e-mail letter, the said letter is certainly a scam and you must not trust its claims nor must you interact with any links or attached files that might have been added to it. Still, as we said above, this phishing e-mail scam might be related and to malicious Trojan Horse viruses such as the insidious 1GxvqXKNy3aEU3K94vTk67rwcFiwq48PYY . This is why we believe that it would be a good idea if you check out the next removal guide where you can learn more about the process of removing 1GxvqXKNy3aEU3K94vTk67rwcFiwq48PYY and use the instructions if you think that your PC might have been infected by this Trojan Horse.
