What is Triton trojan

Statistics show that Trojans make up most part of all undesired programs, according to easiness in use and efficiency. The most common examples of such goals are the steal of passwords and important information, downloading and maintaining already installed malware, espionage or botnets creation. Despite the numerous advantages, Trojan viruses got one major disadvantage - they cannot penetrate victim's machine on their own. Recent time, people think that all malicious or unwanted programs are viruses, but strictly speaking, viruses, unlike Trojans, know how to automatically spread and get into the defenseless device. Trojan viruses efficiently infect systems with little assistance of other viruses or with customer's assistance, but can't make it independently. After infesting the computer, the Trojan is very difficult to discover without help of special software that is highly appreciated by all kinds of fraudsters.

There is a widespread (and wrong) opinion that antivirus can completely protect the PC from viruses. No AV program can defend your system if you daily download and install viruses. But, if you'll assist your antivirus to work, instead of preventing him from doing its job, the system will be protected. It's not hard, and you will have to abide one of the following rules:

  • If you are not prepared to totally forget about using unlicensed programs, you should thoroughly examine each installed tool. Trojan programs most often hide beneath the guise of helpful tools such as search engines, browser games, AV programs, system optimizers, browsers and driver updaters. Don't download weird programs from the above list, and while installing any pirated program - thoroughly follow the installation, revoking all suggestions for getting extra software.
  • The easiest method is to completely quit using programs of dubious provenance. These rules concern any program downloaded not from website of its developer or trusted vendors. Of course, the pirated replicas of useful utilities should also be considered probably harmful. If you stop installing such tools, the probability of infestation would be lowered to minimal, and antivirus will be able to easily deal with it.

Abide to these rules and you'll clearly see their fruits: the PC will be safe, quick and workable, and will be so for years.
