What is The Best Price List email virus?
Malicious software is commonly delivered as a malicious attachment or a website link in an email. Typically, email used to deliver malware is disguised as a letter from a legitimate company, organization, or other entity. This email is disguised as a letter from a Turkish company called ÇAĞRITEL ÇİT. It contains attachments used to deliver FormBook malware.
Cybercriminals behind this email attempt to trick recipients into believing that files attached to it are price lists for products from the ÇAĞRITEL ÇİT company. This email has two archive files attached to it. One of them contains a malicious file named "A---2021 Price List.PDF.exe" file, and another one contains a file named "B---2021 Price List.PDF.exe".
Both of those executable (EXE) files are designed to install FormBook malware. Cybercriminals use FormBook to steal information and distribute other malware. It is known that FormBook can be used to collect login credentials, credit card details, cookies, browsing history, and other information from web browsers and other programs.
Typically, cybercriminals use the aforementioned details to steal identities, personal accounts. It is important to know that stolen accounts and identities may be used to trick other people into sending money or providing personal information, make unauthorized purchases, transactions, deliver malware, and for other purposes.
Also, FormBook is capable of logging keystrokes - it can collect data entered with the keyboard and send it to cybercriminals. Another important detail about FormBook is that it can be used to infect computers with cryptocurrency miners, Trojans, ransomware, and other malicious, unwanted software.

To sum up, cybercriminals often use email as a tool to distribute malware via malicious attachments or website links.

More examples of emails used to deliver malware are "Inbank Email Virus" and "Destel Group Email Virus".
How did The Best Price List email virus infect my computer?
This email has two archive files attached to it, one of them contains a malicious file named "A---2021 Price List.PDF.exe", and another one contains a file named "B---2021 Price List.PDF.exe". Both of those files install FormBook after executing them. It is worth mentioning that emails used to deliver malware can have other files attached to them.
The aforementioned Microsoft Office versions have the "Protected View" mode that prevents malicious documents from installing malware as long as users keep those documents opened with that mode turned on. It is important to mention that older MS Office versions do not include the "Protected View" mode.
How to avoid installation of malware?
It is strongly recommended not to open files and website links in irrelevant emails received from unknown, suspicious addresses. It is important to keep in mind that emails of this type are likely to be used to deliver malware (they are likely to contain malicious files or links).
Programs (and files) should be downloaded from official, trustworthy websites and through direct links. Other sources like unofficial pages, third-party downloaders, Peer-to-Peer networks, etc., can be used to distribute malware. Installed programs must be updated and activated properly - it should be done using tools or functions that their official developers provide.
Another detail about cracking tools is that it is illegal to activate licensed programs with them. Computers should be scanned for threats with a reputable antivirus or anti-spyware software. The installed security suite should always be up to date. If you've already opened The Best Price List email attachment, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate infiltrated malware.

Extract the downloaded archive and run the Autoruns.exe file.
In the Autoruns application, click "Options" at the top and uncheck "Hide Empty Locations" and "Hide Windows Entries" options. After this procedure, click the "Refresh" icon.
Check the list provided by the Autoruns application and locate the malware file that you want to eliminate.
You should write down its full path and name. Note that some malware hides process names under legitimate Windows process names. At this stage, it is very important to avoid removing system files. After you locate the suspicious program you wish to remove, right click your mouse over its name and choose "Delete".
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, be sure to remove it.
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 Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows.
