What is Tonedeaf trojan

Statistics show that Trojans make up the biggest share of all perilous software, according to usability and efficiency. The regular examples of these purposes are spying on the user, botnets building, downloading and maintaining already installed malware or the steal of passwords and important data. The most significant weakness of Trojan viruses lies in their name - Trojans cannot spread without human assistance. Many users believe that virus is everything that is bad for their systems, but viruses, in contradistinction to Trojans, can automatically spread and infest the unprotected computers. Trojans easily get into devices with little assistance of other tools or with customer's help, but cannot make it on their own. After infesting the PC, Trojan virus is nearly impossible to find manually which makes it such a popular tool for swindlers. All things that are written above lead us to an easy decision: Trojans have to be recognized and avoided before they get into the device!

There is a common (and wrong) thought that antivirus can totally protect the system from viruses. Antiviruses are extremely helpful, but they cannot block you the access to malicious websites, and disallow you to download any files, including malware. But, if you will assist your AV utility to act, and won't prevent him from doing its job, the system will be protected. It's not hard, and you'll have to listen to one of the following rules:

  • If you're not ready to fully forget about using pirated content, you should thoroughly examine each downloaded program. Trojan viruses most often lurk beneath the guise of nice programs such as search engines, system optimizers, browsers, antiviral programs, driver updaters and browser games. Do not install weird utilities from the above list, and while any pirated utility is installing - carefully follow the installation, revoking all offers for getting more programs.
  • The easiest method is to completely stop using utilities of suspicious origin. These rules concern all the tools downloaded not from the official developer websites or well-known distributors. Of course, any cracked replicas of paid utilities also are probably malicious. If you quit installing suchlike programs, the probability of penetration would be reduced to a minimum, and AV-software can rapidly cope with it.

Listen to these rules and you will immediately feel their fruits: your PC will be fast, workable and safe, and will be so forever.
