Once installed, KopiLuwak operates as “mailform.js” from these locations: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Temp\, %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\, and %USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows\. You need to delete the file from these folders immediately, before new threats are downloaded. Of course, you are unlikely to realize that a backdoor has been enabled on your system because this infection is silent. While removing the .JS file should not be problematic, clearing the system from other active threats might be tough. You also need to figure out what might have been let in via the backdoor, and we recommend installing a reliable malware scanner to figure that out. First, you might need to delete KopiLuwak to ensure that no other threats can be downloaded without your notice. Once the backdoor is closed, so to speak, you will be able to tackle the remaining threats. Ultimately, it can be a lengthy and complicated process, but it does not need to be. You could use an automated anti-malware program to have all threats removed at once.
If you have found out that you need to remove KopiLuwak from your operating system, you need to keep in mind that other threats are likely to exist inside your operating system. These additional threats could be used to steal private information and perform cyber espionage attacks. This is a serious issue, considering that highly classified government information could be leaked. Ultimately, every piece of malicious software must be deleted from the infected operating system as soon as possible. While KopiLuwak can be erased using the guide provided below, erasing all threats can be too difficult and time-consuming. We strongly advise employing reliable anti-malware software to have the entire operating system cleaned thoroughly. Another benefit to using this software is the reliable full-time protection it can offer. Once your system is clean, it is a good idea to disable macros. Then, if someone asks to enable it, it might be easier to recognize and prevent an attack.
