Do you know what Trojan.Urausy.A is?
Is your operating Windows system locked? Have you tried to launch Task Manager and failed? Then you may need to blame Trojan.Urausy.A, also known as Trojan:Win32/Urausy.A. The monstrous infection travels via Java exploit vulnerabilities and can enter your computer without your knowledge. This is the first reason why you should delete the infection from your computer. The second and most important reason why you should remove Trojan.Urausy.A is because this treacherous program has been developed to trick you into giving up your money!
The malicious Trojan itself is not capable of private data or money stealing; however, it can lock down your computer and present bogus notifications supposedly sent by the FBI, Interpol, Metropolitan Police and other reputable departments. These alerts are displayed accordingly to the country you live in, so that the scam would be more successful. Overall, you should pay no attention to accusations of pirated files’ distribution or pornographic content viewing. If you do – schemers could trick you into paying fake fines using untraceable money transfer systems Ukash, MoneyPak and Paysafecard. Here are some excerpts from the alerts you should ignore:
To unlock the computer, you must pay the fine through MoneyPak of $200.
The amount of fine is £100. You can pay a fine Ukash or Paysafecard.
Fines may only be paid within 72 hours after the infringement. As soon as 72 hours elapse, the possibility to pay the fine expires, and a criminal case is initiated against you automatically within the next 72 hours! The amount of fine is AUD $100. You can pay a fine Ukash.
As you can see, these Australian Federal Police Virus, Police Central e-Crime Unit Virus and FBI Virus alerts are presented in incorrect English. If you were contacted by authentic departments (which would not happen via a PC lock-down) – there would be no grammar mistakes. Moreover, you would not be asked to pay fines through such unreliable systems as Ukash or MoneyPak.
It has been discovered that the malicious Trojan.Urausy.A runs on a few dangerous components – saiAE7.exe, msconfig.dat and RRT.exe. If you do not delete them from the computer, the misguiding message will reappear whenever you turn on the computer. These files can hide the infection from Windows Security Center, execute malign processes, reconfigure Internet Explorer, disable Automatic Updates, release the bogus notification and aggravate manual removal operations. As research shows, RRT.exe can restrict access to Task Manager and Registry Editor both of which are necessary if you wish to delete Trojan.Urausy.A manually.
