Remove Beta Bot

Beta Bot

Vulnerable computer systems and applications:

Computers, service stations.


The Beta Bot is a Trojan horse. Once it infects, it prevents you from visiting anti-virus and other security webpages. Attempts to disable antivirus or anti-malware programs. Steals sensitive information (such as passwords). It may not only be able to spread through e-mail, but also via USB sticks and Skype links.

When it infects a computer, it displays a false Critical Disk Error message and asks you to allow it to run in administrator rights.


  • Install operating system and application updates;
  • Do not open emails/attachments from unknown senders;
  • Use an antivirus program;
  • Do not grant any program administrator rights when the UAC window appears, unless you are the one making system changes.
