If you receive a notification stating that the Email-Worm-Zhelatin.vy worm is secretly spreading to your PC, you should be worried. Not because of Email-Worm-Zhelatin.vy, as it is a bogus infection but because of the threat behind it – Antivirus 8, a well known rogue.
The problem with Email-Worm-Zhelatin.vy is that it was invented by the developers of Antivirus 8 to panic and deceive users into thinking that their PC has been compromised. This is classic scare tactics employed by developers of rogue security tools in an effort to extort consumers out of their money.
Gullible and inexperienced PC owners might fall susceptible to this form of ransomware in a concerted effort to protect their PCs’ safety, and naively follow the instructions advised by the cyber criminals in order to remove Email-Worm-Zhelatin.vy. They will inevitable end up having to buy Antivirus 8 in order to delete Email-Worm-Zhelatin.vy, or that is what these cyber criminals will want them to believe anyway.
The best way to protect yourself from these cyber criminals and their increasingly clever ways of touting their rogues is to cloak yourself in knowledge. Take note of the body of the fake Email-Worm-Zhelatin.vy security message:
“Warning! New Virus Detected!
In order to effectively and permanently get rid of Email-Worm-Zhelatin.vy and its surreptitious infections, employ the power of properly functioning updated security tools. The only way to heal your system of these infections will be to eradicate Email-Worm-Zhelatin.vy permanently as a matter or urgency, and continuously protect your system from future threats.
