What is JS Agent EDB trojan

IT-specialists say that Trojans make up the biggest share of all undesired software, due to the fact that they are cheap, simple in operation and suitable for various illegal tasks. The regular examples of these tasks are botnets creation, the steal of passwords and important information, espionage or downloading and maintaining already installed malware. The most important disadvantage of Trojans lies in their name - Trojans cannot spread without human assistance. Usually users believe that virus is anything that is not good for their machines, but Trojans can’t be called so, since virus can replicate itself, that can quickly distribute itself through data carriers and the Internet. Trojan programs cannot reproduce themselves, and cannot get into the machine independently. After penetrating the workstation, the Trojan is very hard to reveal manually which makes it a very popular tool for hackers. All things that are written above lead us to an easy solution: Trojans have to be recognized and disarmed until they infect the device!

There is a widespread (and bad) idea that antivirus is capable of protecting your device from viruses. Antiviruses are extremely helpful, but they cannot block you the access to infected webpages, and prohibit you to download anything you want, including viruses. However, if you will help your antivirus to act, instead of preventing him from working, the device will be safe. There are two methods to achieve this effect:

  • The safest option is to totally stop using utilities of dubious provenance. These rules related to any tool downloaded not from the reliable developer websites or well-known vendors. Obviously, all cracked copies of useful utilities also are potentially dangerous. If you quit downloading suchlike programs, the probability of penetration would be lowered to a minimum, and AV-software will be able to easily deal with this minimum.
  • If you are not ready to fully forget about using not official programs, you have to thoroughly examine each installed utility. Trojans commonly lurk under the guise of useful utilities such as driver updaters, browsers, system optimizers, browser games, AV programs and search engines. Don't download suspicious utilities from this list, and while installing any pirated program - watch closely at the installation, declining all proposals for installing additional software.

Follow these rules and you will immediately feel the result: your computer will be workable, fast and clean, and will remain so forever.
