The invasive 3arpy3ka virus may be a click away. We’ve all had that one pop up ad reminding us that a new version of Flash Media has been detected, and we will stop at nothing to mute the incessant reminder! Wily computer hackers have tuned into our willingness to hit “yes” without second guessing, and have created pop up ads as an entrance into your personal data.
The 3arpy3ka Virus: What it is and how to detect it
What is the 3arpy3ka virus, you ask? The 3arpy3ka virus is considered a Trojan Horse within the IT community because it enters your system disguised as a tool to help. Oftentimes an ad will pop up saying that a software on your computer is due for an update. Naturally, as we all love to stay up to date with technology, we proceed to download the new updates directly from the pop up without a second thought. Typically, when you are prompted to update your software, you are redirected to that software’s website. Here’s the trick: the false add will redirect you to another freeware, and it is within that page that you will be downloading the malicious 3arpy3ka virus.
Once the 3arpy3ka virus is downloaded, it will debilitate your computer’s security system, thus giving hacker’s access to all of your computer’s information. They can manipulate the system from within. Once the virus has been downloaded, your server is subject to constant attacks.
Capabilities of the virus:
- It can make changes in your system settings without consent
