What is MalHide trojan

Experts declare that Trojans make up the biggest percentage of all malicious programs, thanks to easiness in use and effectiveness. The most common examples of these tasks are the steal of passwords and important data, botnets development, downloading and controlling already installed malware or spying on the user. Despite the abundance of strengths, Trojan viruses got one significant disadvantage - they can't penetrate customer's PC on their own. Recent time, users think that all malicious or suspicious programs are viruses, but we should say that viruses, unlike Trojans, can automatically distribute themselves and infect the defenseless computers. Trojan viruses cannot clone themselves, and cannot infest the device without victim's permission. After penetrating the PC, Trojan virus is very hard to discover without assistance of AV software that is very appreciated by all sorts of swindlers. All the facts described above bring us to an obvious solution: Trojans should be found and disarmed before they infest the system!

There's a widespread (and wrong) idea that antivirus is capable of defending the device from viruses. No antivirus can help you if you daily download and install malware. To ensure protection, you need to reconsider your habits, and act prudently on all websites. It's not difficult, and you will have to abide one of the following advices:

  • If you aren't prepared to completely abandon the use of pirated programs, you have to carefully inspect all utilities that you're going to install. Trojans most often lurk under the guise of decent programs such as search engines, AV programs, driver updaters, browsers, system optimizers and browser games. Don't install strange tools from the above list, and while another pirated utility is installing - watchfully follow the installation, declining all offers for getting extra programs.
  • The safest option is to totally quit using programs of dubious provenance. These principles related to all the programs downloaded not from website of its developer or licensed distributors. Of course, all pirated copies of useful tools also are potentially dangerous. If you quit downloading suchlike tools, the probability of infection would be reduced to minimal, and antivirus will be able to easily deal with it.

Abide to these rules and you will clearly see their result: the PC will be safe, speedy and workable, and will stay so for years.
