What is NanoCore RAT trojan

Statistics show that Trojan viruses make up most part of all harmful programs, thanks to easiness in use and efficiency. The very common examples of such goals are botnets creation, espionage, the steal of passwords and important information or downloading and maintaining already installed malware. Despite the numerous strengths, Trojan viruses got one significant disadvantage - they cannot infect customer's PC without his help. Many customers think that virus is everything that is bad for their computers, but viruses, unlike Trojans, know how to easily distribute themselves and penetrate the unprotected device. Trojans efficiently get into computers with help of other programs or with user's assistance, but cannot make it on their own. There's only thing that Trojan virus is capable of doing before entering the PC is waiting until the naive victim downloads it and installs it. All these things were said to demonstrate one simple thought: user shouldn't let Trojans to enter the machine, since it's very difficult to uninstall them then to avoid them.

There is a common (and wrong) thought that antiviral utility can totally shield the system from malware. Antiviral tools are very useful, but they can't restrict the whole Internet, and forbid you to download any files, including malware. But, if you will assist your AV software to work, and won't hinder him from doing its job, the computer will be protected. You can achieve this goal with help of two simple methods:

  • If you're not going to totally abandon the use of pirated content, you should carefully inspect all utilities that you are installing. Trojan programs usually hide beneath the guise of nice tools such as AV programs, system optimizers, browser games, driver updaters, browsers and search engines. Do not install weird programs from the above list, and when another pirated tool is installing - thoroughly follow the installation, canceling all suggestions for getting more programs.
  • The easiest way is to fully quit using programs of suspicious origin. By these we mean all the programs downloaded not from website of its developer or trusted distributors. Of course, the pirated replicas of good tools must also be treated as probably harmful. If you stop using such software, the chances of infestation would be reduced to minimal, and antivirus can rapidly cope with it.

Abide to these advices and you will immediately see the fruits: the system will be fast, clean and workable, and will remain so for a long time.
