You only need a trusted antivirus with an internet security like Kaspersky for you to not be infected by the copy paste virus. If I were you, I wouldn't recommend Microsoft Security Essentials because it is still prone to other virus that steals cryptocurrencies. I also see no need to discuss this further because we already have the easiest way to be safe from that type of virus. Either way, thanks for this informative post.

I don't know, but microsoft support is kind of useless. Never helped me in any way other than with that registry script. Grin

Good antivirus is just enough, and I'd suggest malwarebytes, and care what websites and programs you visit and download.

It's good to know earlier about this virus and to check my computer if it's already infected. I'm using Eset Nod32 antivirus and it's fine. Thanks for the info and awareness. I hope we are all safe from this type of virus.

There are many people who have been a victim of this copy paste virus. When you copy a certain bitcoin address and place it on the sending are the virus will replace the address with the hackers bitcoin address. Though there are many anti-virus such as bit defender but the best way to overcome this is to always double check the btc address .

The best way to avoid a copy/paste virus is not to download "risky" executables on the same machine you use to create transactions/store wallets. Also: keep away from risky websites. I mean, if you're browsing the web visiting illegal download sites, download pirated programs, download software from people you don't trust,... you shouldn't be supprised if your pc became infected sooner or later...

I prefer to run linux, don't use the root user unless absolutely necessary, only download binaries from my trusted repos, run clamav on all packages i download (even from trusted sources), make sure my firewall is properly configured and make sure i update my packages regularly.

So far, i haven't had a single virus on my machine (ever).

Regarding Kapersky, the US government doesn't seem to like them. I'm not saying they're bad or that the allegations against them are true, but it's a factor you may want to consider before using their antivirus.

Either way, the best way to deal with these viruses is to not deal with them at all. If you're running Windows, it's very easy (and free!) to dual boot Linux, which you could use exclusively for crypto activities. Most popular wallets support it, so you won't run into any compatibility issues, and you're far less likely to encounter any malicious viruses in the wild.

This should be enough in most cases, but IMO people should be very paranoid about their bitcoins, because even one misstep is enough to lose your money, and many users hold at least a few coins, so losing $15-20k to some malware is very painful. So, in order to reduce this risk as much as possible, people should only sign Bitcoin transactions in completely isolated environment - either with hardware wallets or with their own cold storage machine.

I tried with avast and Kaspersky free version but failed to remove that. I also used malwarebyte but did not work.

I seen that virus from that topics, if you copy the address of bitcoin and paste it you will get another address in your paste, I think you can check it twice before you send it, and I suggest you try Linux os or MacOS because as I know that virus is popular in windows user and they don't know about Linux, so right now the Linux is secure than windows

Of course free version of Kaspersky and Avast is not good. Try Kaspersky's paid version, I am quite satisfied with their internet security feature. In avast's case though, I think their paid version is also bad and their service is not worth its price.
Regarding Kapersky, the US government doesn't seem to like them. I'm not saying they're bad or that the allegations against them are true, but it's a factor you may want to consider before using their antivirus.
I just use Kaspersky as an example since I think their paid version of internet security is good(which I am using in my laptop). In my desktop PC(which I always use when doing crypto related things when I am at home), I use ESET Nod32 Antivirus.

Be careful with online services
You should beware of any services that offer the storage of your online funds. Many exchangers and online purses in the past have suffered from security holes and such services are still insufficiently insured and safe to keep funds there, like in a bank. Naturally, you can use other types of bitcoin-purses. Or, you should choose these services very carefully. In addition, two-factor authorization is recommended.

Honestly Im not aware at first what is a copy paste virus.Thanks to this post I learned something new.Well for me just be careful everytime you copy an address as what all people here say and double check it before sending.Then its also good to be careful in opening different websites or downloading an app coz it might be the main reason to get a virus.And lastly I will check all the anti virus app that is suggested here so that in case bad things happened I know what to do.
