Kelihos Worm. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

by ,   | Type: Worms

Kelihos Worm is a dangerous cyber infection, which has been infecting computers for a long time. From time to time, scammers update it and start applying new methods for its distribution. At this moment, we have noticed them taking advantage of the explosion at the Boston Marathon. Be aware about the deceptive emails that seem to be related to these issues and have the massage ending with 'boston.html', 'new.html' or similar. After click the link, which is usually included to such fake email, user lets Kelihos Worm inside. Additionally, this worm starts stealing user's loggin information, banking data and other sensitive information by recording the keystrokes entered and may conceal all the directories on the removable drive or drop files that have the .LNK extensions. If you have been tricked to open misleading email and have clicked on the link or downloaded a file, you should remove Kelihos Worm ASAP. For that, we recommend using updated anti-spyware.


Kelihos Worm is actively distributed via spam emails and social networks, such as Twitter and Facebook. Some of these messages look like they were sent from the news agency CNN, others doesn't even bother to show the sender. As we have said, these deceptive emails look like they are related to the latest events of Boston but they can also notify you about other actual issues happening in the world. The subjects you should be aware of are “2 Explosions at Boston Marathon”, “Boston Explosion Caught on Video”, “Video of Explosion at the Boston Marathon 2013” and similar ones. The link, which is usually included, is http://______/boston.html. If you fall for clicking it, computer gets infected with malware that starts its malicious job there. Please, remove Kelihos Worm if you have downloaded it unknowingly! Otherwise, you will become a victim of identity theft.

We don't recommend using manual removal method for this threat because you won't be capable to get ird of all infected files from your computer. You must scan your PC with updated anti-spyware and remove malicious files from the system. We recommend using SpyHunter for doing that fast and easy.
