How to remove RDN/YahLover.worm!055BCCAC9FEC

In recent years, IT sphere is developing very rapidly, and the effectiveness of the various programs is growing. In particular, the anti-virus software becomes more intelligent and better recognize different viruses. Even the most sophisticated viruses have only a few days, or in the best case - weeks in order to function freely. After that, all antivirus programs add a new virus in their databases, and instantly recognize it. In this regard, it remains quite a bit of options to virus developers: to continuously create new viruses, aiming to win at the expense of quantity, or try to fool the user not at the expense of the complexity of the program, but by psychology.That's how a "virus" called RDN/YahLover.worm!055BCCAC9FEC works. A few days ago, the forum on anti-malware were flooded by threads where users complained about the new virus RDN/YahLover.worm!055BCCAC9FEC, which blocks Google Chrome and probably makes a lot of different things that people do not even know. In this article we will tell you about what is this virus, and how to deal with it.

Actually, RDN/YahLover.worm!055BCCAC9FEC virus, even if it exists, does not cause any trouble. That problem faced by users, generally does not apply to their computers. The basis of the problem is a website, hitting on that, the user is shown a pop-up window with the message that his computer is infected with the virus. Also, at this point the user's browser is "locked" and cannot be closed in a conventional manner. The whole site is a great message in white letters on a red background, and has no functionality other than "blocking" of browser. The site also indicates the scammer’s phone number, posing as technical support.

How to remove RDN/YahLover.worm!055BCCAC9FEC from browser

Removing the "virus" RDN/YahLover.worm!055BCCAC9FEC won’t take long. You only need to press ctrl + alt + del, go to Task Manager and use it to close the browser in which the virus page was opened. After that you should clean history, and continue to use the Internet safely.

All this fuss aims to force the user to worry about, and to call the indicated number. If the user calls - the crooks plan succeeded. Here’s the three-stage scheme of fraud whereby scammers simply cannot remain at a loss:

  • Stage 1: The user calls the paid (and very expensive) number, where he communicates with a specially trained operator who is trying to make the conversation as long as possible, and to persuade the user to give remote access to his computer.
  • Stage 2: If the user agrees to the remote access, he remains on the phone with the operator (do not forget that the call is worth about $5 per minute), and the operator tries to explain where to find the software for remote access, and how to install it. This operation, as well as the program setting can seem too complicated to the user, and he receives an offer to buy anti-virus program.
  • Stage 3: If the user agrees to purchase antivirus software, and begins the payments from the same computer on which the program for remote access was installed, he pays for 10-15 minutes of call, gives a lot of money for a fake antivirus, and gives the fraudsters access to his bank account, or account in any payment system.

Thus, fraudsters are making huge profits at minimum cost. The site, which this scheme of fraud begins with, can be found on the Internet, reached via links on other viral websites, or via different adware and hijackers. According to this – your system actually might be infected by adware, and if you are still worried about that - you should download the decent antivirus and check the system using it. We advise you to use Reimage Repair or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM), because they certainly will find that program in few minutes without any risk and additional expenses.
