How did you end up stuck with Upup.exe? Trojans, like others pests, also rely on deceptive tactics to enter victims` machines. One of their favorite ones is spam email messages. Hackers attach the Trojan to an email and disguise the email to look legitimate. Then, they send it directly to your inbox. From there, you do the rest. Do not open messages from unknown senders even if they look safe.
Hackers often use company names, logos, stamps to fool you. Don’t fall into the trap. If you do not personally know the sender, proceed with caution and do not download any attachments. If the message claims that it is from a company, compare that company`s official address to the one you got the email from. If they don’t match, be sure it is a scam. Always be careful what you let into your machine. Cybercriminals are praying for your haste, distraction, and negligence.
