What is the worst thing that can happen if you open spam emails? The scenarios can be pretty bleak, and Trojan.Redgamble is one of many infections that could invade your system because of this. More and more malware creators and distributors are now using misleading spam emails with fabricated, legitimate-looking addresses and messages. If the victim is tricked into believing the legitimacy of misleading emails, they can let in malware themselves without even knowing about it. Once in, the infection can cause serious damage, and it is specifically targeted at those who play online gambling games. According to our research team, the infection can steal information without the user’s knowledge, and that might be one of the worst offenses because no one wants information about them leaked online. Whether you have identified the threat, and you know that you need to remove Trojan.Redgamble, or you are still trying to figure out what is going on, we advise that you continue reading this report.
Once the malicious Trojan.Redgamble slithers into your operating system, it immediately creates more components, and it might be difficult to identify them all. According to our research, the infection primarily creates DLL files in the %PROGRAMFILES% and %PROGRAMFILES(X86)% directories. The sample obtained by our analysts created folders named CHERRYGAME, CHERRYGAMEH, CHERRYGAMEJ, GRANDGAME, GRANDGAMEH, GRANDGAMEJ, IMPACTGAME, MONSTERGAME, RUBYGAME, SWEETGAME, and TITANGAME, but folders with different names could be created for every victim. If you find these or similar folders anywhere on your computer, we suggest deleting them without further hesitation; especially, if a suspicious DLL file is found inside. In our case, we needed to remove iphlpapi.dll, but the name of this file could be modified. It was also found that Trojan.Redgamble might create components in the %WINDIR% directory. If you find suspicious DLL and EXE files in this directory, and if folders named “addins” or “Tasks” are found, you can suspect the invasion of the malicious Trojan. Of course, it is best to confirm the attack of this infection using a trustworthy malware scanner. If you do not know which one to trust, we suggest clicking the Download button and installing a reliable and free malware scanner.
Our tests have concluded that the devious Trojan.Redgamble was created to steal information associated with online gambling games. Although it is not known if the infection can steal passwords, usernames, credit card information, or other kinds of highly sensitive data, it is known that it can record the game channel, the title of the game room, the type of the game, the server, and user’s game information. On top of that, Trojan.Redgamble can take screenshots when the victim is playing the game. So, for example, if you play Poker online, and you play using real money, you are at risk of having information about your activity recorded and leaked online. The scary thing is that if this infection is capable of recording specific data, it has the potential to record everything else, and so it is incredibly important to remove the Trojan before the attacker behind it uses it to extract even more sensitive information. After you delete this threat, it is crucial to change passwords and take appropriate security measures to secure personal data.
It appears that Trojan.Redgamble has many variables, which is why manual removal can be complicated. If you do not have experience identifying malicious components, removing this suspicious and strange threat can be quite difficult; if not impossible. So, what are your options? One option for you is to follow the guide below that shows how to find and erase the infection. Another option is to install automated anti-malware software. It would delete Trojan.Redgamble components without you having to do anything, and if other threats exist, they would be eliminated too. Without a doubt, this is the best option for anyone, and that is why we recommend it to you and everyone else who is dealing with Trojans and other kinds of malware. Anti-malware software is meant to protect your system against threats in the future, but you yourself need to keep away from spam emails, malicious installers, unreliable file-sharing websites, random pop-ups, and other kinds of security backdoors that attackers could use to spread malware.
