What is Jonysource trojan

Statistics show that Trojans make up the biggest percentage of all unwanted software, due to usability and effectiveness. The regular examples of such tasks are botnets creation, espionage, the steal of passwords and crucial data or updating and controlling already installed malware. The only weakness of Trojans lies in their name - they cannot infect anything without victim's assistance. Most of customers think that virus is anything that's bad for their devices, but viruses, instead of Trojans, know how to automatically distribute themselves and get into the defenseless PC. Trojans effectively infest computers with little assistance of other viruses or with customer's assistance, but can't make it independently. There's only thing that Trojan virus can do before entering the PC is waiting until the inexperienced victim downloads it and installs it. All the facts written in this paragraph lead us to one solution: Trojans have to be found and disarmed until they penetrate the system!

Many users believe that to stop viral penetration they just need to install an AV-program, but it's wrong. No antiviral program can protect your system if you download new malicious programs every day. To make sure that the machine is safe, you have to get rid of dangerous habits, and act prudently in the Web. You can achieve this aim with help of two simple methods:

  • The highly effective choice is to totally quit using software of suspicious origin. By these we mean all the utilities downloaded not from the official developer websites or trusted distributors. Obviously, all cracked copies of good utilities also are probably dangerous. If you stop using such software, the chances of infection would be reduced to a minimum, and antivirus will be able to easily deal with this minimum.
  • If you aren't going to absolutely abandon the use of pirated utilities, you must thoroughly inspect each downloaded utility. Trojan programs most often lurk under the guise of decent tools such as search engines, browser games, system optimizers, driver updaters, AV software and browsers. Do not install suspicious programs from this list, and when any pirated utility is installing - thoroughly follow the installation, canceling all suggestions for installing more programs.

Follow these advices and you'll immediately feel their result: your device will become workable, fast and clean, and will be so for years.
