What is CrossRAT trojan

So, Trojans are the most numerous part of viruses in modern infosphere, which is used by hackers for different tasks. Such tasks in most cases have semi-legal or illegal specific, such as downloading and maintaining already installed malware, theft of passwords and crucial information, spying on the user or botnets creation. Despite the multiple advantages, Trojans have one important disadvantage - they can't infect customer's computer on their own. Many customers think that virus is anything that's bad for their systems, but viruses, in contradistinction to Trojans, know how to automatically spread and infect the unprotected systems. Trojan viruses cannot reproduce themselves, and can’t infect the computer without victim's assistance. The only thing that Trojan can do before getting into the computer is to wait until the inexperienced user chooses to download it and installs it. All the facts described above bring us to a simple solution: Trojans should be detected and avoided before they infest the device!

There's a common (and wrong) opinion that AV software can fully shield the system from viruses. Antiviral software are very helpful, but they can't block the whole Internet, and disallow you to download any files, including malware. To ensure protection, you should reconsider your habits, and behave prudently on all websites. It's not difficult, and you will have to abide one of the following advices:

  • If you aren't ready to completely forget about using not official content, you should carefully inspect each downloaded tool. Trojans commonly hide beneath the guise of decent programs such as driver updaters, browsers, browser games, search engines, system optimizers and AV programs. Don't install suspicious programs from this list, and when installing any unlicensed utility - watch closely at the installation, canceling all offers for downloading more software.
  • The very effective option is to fully quit using software of suspicious provenance. These rules concern any tool downloaded not from website of its developer or licensed vendors. Obviously, all cracked copies of good programs also are probably harmful. If you quit installing such software, the probability of penetration would be decreased to a minimum, and AV-program can quickly deal with this minimum.

Listen to these rules and you'll clearly see the fruits: your PC will become workable, speedy and clean, and will be so for years.
