The all-time high risk of malware infections caused by a virus called Malware is the main reason for the creation of the article below. We have assembled everything about its Trojan-type features and the possible harm such programs may result in. Although this is a truly terrible threat, the details below may be enough to help you comprehend the real nature of your problem. In order to help you to remove this malware, we have also designed a Removal Guide. Hopefully, the removal instructions you will get there will assist you in resolving this malware-related issue.

What could be expected from the viruses called Trojans?

When we talk about malware infections, most of them are actually inflicted by various representatives of Trojans. It’s true that these viruses are the most common and multifunctional ones. Typically, they may be distributed in nearly any way. Moreover, they might have purposes so different that the potential consequences resulting from them might be diverse as well. The reason why so many seemingly different programs have been gathered in one and the same category is the fact that they are capable of getting incorporated in your PC in a stealthy way without the need to ask for your (informed or uninformed) permission. What’s more, the majority of these viruses has the ability to stay there unnoticed for as much time as it takes to get ready to show their real malicious face (just like the wooden structure they are named after from the world famous Ancient Greek story of love, deceit and war).

How does get distributed?

You may catch such an infection in plenty of different ways:

  • Such malware may get incorporated into web pages, torrents and shareware and once you visit such a web location, the virus could get installed automatically.
  • These viruses could come from video and movie spreading websites, almost always – illegal ones.
  • You may get infected via loading a contagious letter in your email or any of its attachments. (Normally, in such cases the Trojan might come together with a Ransomware virus.)
  • On your screen you might regularly start seeing some more or less suspicious but real-looking update alerts. Please, do not let them fool you. Such notifications could actually take you to contaminated web pages and you may become a victim of malware even worse than
  • One more distribution method is via any non-genuine ad you might come across on the Internet. These contagious ads are not malicious on their own. The truth is that they may be injected with malware or could be able to redirect you to places on the web that might contain malware.

Possible aims and goals of

Actually, any virus like could serve many damaging purposes. Some of them we have included in our list in this paragraph. Nevertheless, we cannot talk about every single way of exploiting Trojans in just one article. Of course, the most common ones have been included.

  • The cyber criminals behind Trojans could need to DAMAGE something. To your horror, this may be your PC and its content. It might get crashed by such malware. Some of your files could be destroyed, damaged, modified or even encoded.
  • The hackers could simply want to rob you or hijack your IDENTITY. That’s why Trojan viruses may often get exploited for copying and keeping account details which could after that let those hackers drain your bank accounts or steal your profiles online. Maybe some online crimes will also be committed on your behalf, which could really lead to serious problems with the authorities.
  • In some cases these malicious programs get used for merely sneaking other forms of viruses into your PC. The most popular other malware versions Trojans could sneak into your system are those based on Ransomware. This possibility is also horrifying as Ransomware is a kind of malware, adept  at encrypting files and requesting a ransom. No guarantee will be promised for the successful restoration of the locked-up data no matter if you refuse or accept to pay the hackers.
