What is Roblox virus?

The Roblox virus is trojan-type malware that claims to be a cheating application for a game called Roblox. Some players believe that this malicious app will significantly ease gameplay (supposedly allowing them to generate in-game currency free of charge), but they simply end up infecting their computers.

Roblox malware

The Roblox virus executable is called "Robux Generator v2.0 Updated 2018" and is presented as a hack - an in-game currency ("Robux") generator. This application gives no real value for (dishonest) players looking to cheat. It infects the system and proliferates another trojan called Win32/OnLineGames. Furthermore, there are a number of different actions that this malware might perform, including recording data (keystrokes, saved logins/passwords, browsing history, and so on), providing developers with remote access, downloading/installing other malware, and so on. Therefore, Win32/OnLineGames poses a significant threat to your privacy and computer safety - cyber criminals cause serious privacy issues and financial loss. Furthermore, the system might be infected and misused for malicious purposes. If you have recently downloaded and opened the "Robux Generator v2.0 Updated 2018" app, there is a high probability that your system is infected. Therefore, you should immediately scan the system with a reputable anti-virus/anti-spyware suite and remove all detected threats.

There are hundreds of trojan-type viruses. The list of examples includes (but is not limited to) LokiBot, Emotet, and FormBook. Most of these viruses are developed by different cyber criminals, but they typically have identical behavior - they record sensitive information to generate revenue. In some cases, however, they are capable of accepting commands from remote servers to perform certain actions (e.g., connecting the computer to a botnet, downloading other viruses [such as ransomware], stealing stored files, and so on). In any case, trojan-type viruses pose a direct threat to your privacy and Internet browsing safety and, therefore, they should be uninstalled immediately.

How did Roblox virus infect my computer?

As mentioned above, the Roblox virus claims to be an in-game hack and. therefore, many users download this trojan intentionally. This, however, is not the case for other trojans. Most infiltrate systems without consent, since developers proliferate them by spam email campaigns, third party software download sources (peer-to-peer [P2P] networks, freeware download websites, free file hosting sites, etc.), and fake software updaters. Email spam campaigns distribute malicious attachments (typically MS Office documents) that, once opened, execute commands that download and install malware. Unofficial download sources present malicious executables as legitimate software, thereby tricking users into downloading and installing malware. Fake updaters infect the system by exploiting outdated software bugs/flaws or simply downloading and installing malware rather than updates.

How to avoid installation of malware?

To prevent this situation, be very cautious when browsing the Internet and downloading/installing/updating software. Think twice before opening email attachments. Files that seem irrelevant or have been received from suspicious/unrecognizable emails should never be opened. Furthermore, download your programs from official sources only, using direct download links. Third party downloaders/installers often include rogue apps, and thus these tools should never be used. The same applies to software updates. It is important to keep installed applications up-to-date, however, this should be achieved through implemented features or tools provided by the official developer only. Having a reputable anti-virus/anti-spyware suite installed and running is also paramount. The main reasons for computer infections are poor knowledge and careless behavior - the key to safety is caution. If your computer is already infected with Roblox virus, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate infiltrated malware.

After you locate the suspicious program you wish to remove, right click your mouse over its name and choose "Delete".

locate the malware file you want to remove

After removing the malware through the Autoruns application (this ensures that the malware will not run automatically on the next system startup), you should search for the malware name on your computer. Be sure to enable hidden files and folders before proceeding. If you find the filename of the malware, remove it.

searching for malware file on your computer

Reboot your computer in normal mode. Following these steps should remove any malware from your computer. Note that manual threat removal requires advanced computer skills. If you do not have these skills, leave malware removal to antivirus and anti-malware programs. These steps might not work with advanced malware infections. As always it is best to prevent infection than try to remove malware later. To keep your computer safe, install the latest operating system updates and use antivirus software.

To be sure your computer is free of malware infections, we recommend scanning it with Spyhunter for Windows.
