I wrote this article to help you remove Wannacry Hack Team Email Warning. This Wannacry Hack Team Email Warning removal guide works for all Windows versions.

Wannacry is a dangerous ransomware virus. But do not be afraid. The Wannacry Hack Team email warning is not this virus. Hackers just use its name in order to scare people. However, they do know your email. Those cyber criminals will try to lure you in their trap. Do not fall in it! This is all just a scheme to make you believe that something is wrong with your computer and that your files are compromised. That is not true.

If you receive such ‘Wannacry Hack Team’ email, you need to immediately delete it. Whatever you do – don’t open it! It is also advisable to scan your PC for malware. Emails like these are usually generated by PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs). This PUP can be anything – from a browser add-on or toolbar to a video player. Such PUP parasite has the ability to redirect the web traffic to scam or infected sites.

How did this malicious software manage to infiltrate your computer? With your help, of course. The thing is, users unknowingly grant such unwanted programs access. This often happens when they opt for a Standard or Quick installation when they download software from the internet. The most common mean of PUP distribution is by free software bundles that have been repackaged by developers and include programs and applications, along with malware that is not properly disclosed and thus the victim is unaware of its existence.

We recommend going for Custom/Advanced mode in the Setup Wizard instead. This way users can have full control over the downloaded content and can easily deselect any software that they deem untrustworthy or never intended to download in the first place.

The unwanted program that is behind the Wannacry Hack team warning email is not to be underestimated. It has the means to turn you into an easy target. This parasite will monitor your web activity and also collect your personal data like browsing history, search queries, etc. Such action is done, so as to generate targeted ad content that may reroute you to suspicious third-party websites. PUP like this one is not to be left unattended! It may lead to a serious security breach!

It got to your email address, next it can be your credit card number or worse! You must remove this unwanted program before it causes any more damages or steal your private information.
