What is JS:MINER-C trojan

Experts declare that Trojan software make up the largest percentage of all malicious software, according to the fact that they are easy in use, convenient for different criminal tasks and cheap. The most common examples of such goals are updating and controlling already installed viruses, theft of passwords and crucial information, spying on the user or botnets development. The most significant weakness of Trojans is being explained by their name - Trojans cannot spread without human help. Recent time, customers started to think that any perilous or suspicious tools are viruses, but we should say that Trojans cannot be called so, because virus can replicate itself, that can quickly spread through data carriers and the Internet. Trojans can’t replicate themselves, and cannot infest the machine on their own. There's only thing that Trojan is capable of doing before entering the computer is waiting until the inexperienced customer chooses to download it and installs it. All the facts written in this paragraph lead us to a simple solution: Trojan viruses should be recognized and neutralized until they get into the machine!

There's a common (and wrong) idea that antiviral tool can totally defend the PC from viruses. No antiviral utility can help you if you daily download and install viruses. To ensure protection, you have to get rid of dangerous habits, and act prudently on the Internet. You can achieve this goal via two easy methods:

  • The most efficient option is to completely stop using programs of dubious provenance. By these we mean all the utilities downloaded not from website of its developer or well-known distributors. Naturally, all cracked replicas of licensed programs also are probably harmful. If you quit using suchlike programs, the chances of penetration would be reduced to minimal, and AV-tool will be able to quickly deal with this minimum.
  • If you aren't prepared to absolutely abandon the use of unlicensed programs, you must thoroughly examine each installed program. Trojans commonly hide beneath the guise of good programs such as system optimizers, search engines, browser games, driver updaters, browsers and AV programs. Don't download suspicious tools from the above list, and when installing another unlicensed program - watch closely at the installation, declining all proposals for getting more software.

Use these advices and you will clearly see the result: the system will become quick, workable and safe, and will be so for years.
