What is Win32/Wajagen.a trojan

So, Trojan viruses are the widest part of malware in current information space that is used by web-criminals for many purposes. Such goals often have semi-legal or illegal properties, such as theft of passwords and other data, botnets creation, updating and controlling already installed viruses or espionage. Despite their multiple strengths, Trojans have one well-known disadvantage - they can't infect customer's PC without his assistance. In last years, users began to think that any malicious or unwanted tools are viruses, but we should say that Trojans cannot be called so, since virus can replicate itself, that can quickly spread over data carriers and the Internet. Trojan viruses efficiently get into PC's with help of other malware or with customer's permission, but cannot do it on their own. After entering the workstation, Trojan virus is extremely difficult to reveal without help of antiviral software that is highly appreciated by all sorts of fraudsters. All the facts written in this paragraph bring us to one solution: Trojans should be found and neutralized before they get into the device!

There is a common (and bad) idea that antivirus can completely defend the system from malicious software. No antiviral tool can protect your computer if you download new malware every day. To make sure that the computer is safe, you should get rid of dangerous habits, and act prudently on the Internet. You can achieve this aim via two easy methods:

  • If you aren't ready to absolutely forget about using unlicensed programs, you must thoroughly examine all programs that you are installing. Trojan programs usually lurk under the guise of helpful tools such as browser games, search engines, browsers, special software, system optimizers and driver updaters. Do not download strange tools from this list, and when another pirated tool is installing - thoroughly follow the installation, canceling all suggestions for downloading additional programs.
  • The easiest method is to fully stop using software of dubious background. By these we mean any utility downloaded not from website of its developer or trusted distributors. Of course, all pirated copies of useful software should also be considered probably harmful. If you quit installing such programs, the chances of infestation would be decreased to minimal, and AV-program can easily cope with it.

Abide to these directions and you'll clearly see the fruits: the computer will be speedy, clean and workable, and will be so forever.
