J2Ancheta trojan virus

In most cases, there is no infection on your own computer, just a scary message on the mail. Hackers used the vulnerability in web programming by changing address from what they send the message. Gmail in most cases can block spam e-mail, but some other hosts are not be able to do that accidentally. Therefore, it is a very little probability that your computer has a Trojan virus, but it will be better to check. We made the next paragraphs to help anyone to identify and delete Trojan virus, if it is in the system. If you think, you do not need these instructions, just scan the system by additional antivirus and change the important passwords.

What is a trojan virus

In computing, a Trojan horse, or Trojan, is any malware which misleads users of its true intent. The term is derived from the Ancient Greek story of the deceptive Trojan Horse that led to the fall of the city of Troy.[1][2][3][4][5]

Trojans are generally spread by some form of social engineering, for example where a user is duped into executing an e-mail attachment disguised to appear not suspicious, (e.g., a routine form to be filled in), or by clicking on some fake advertisement on social media or anywhere else. Although their payload can be anything, many modern forms act as a backdoor, contacting a controller which can then have unauthorized access to the affected computer.[6] Trojans may allow an attacker to access users' personal information such as banking information, passwords, or personal identity. It can also delete a user's files or infect other devices connected to the network. Ransomware attacks are often carried out using a Trojan.

Unlike computer viruses and worms, Trojans generally do not attempt to inject themselves into other files or otherwise propagate themselves.

Statistics show that Trojans make up most part of all undesired programs, thanks to the fact that they are cheap, easy to use and convenient for many illegal tasks. The most common examples of such tasks are downloading and controlling already installed adware, botnets creation, spying on the user or the steal of passwords and important information. Despite the abundance of advantages, Trojan viruses have one major disadvantage - they cannot infect victim's machine independently. In recent years, people think that any malicious or unwanted tools are viruses, but strictly speaking, Trojans cannot be called so, because virus is the self-replicating software, that can easily distribute itself over local networks and the Internet. Trojan viruses can’t replicate themselves, and can’t get into the computer independently. After penetrating the device, the Trojan is nearly impossible to detect without help of special software that is highly valuable for all sorts of fraudsters. All things that are described above bring us to a simple decision: Trojan viruses have to be detected and avoided before they get into the device!

There's a common opinion that antivirus can totally shield the computer from harmful software. Antiviral programs are very helpful, but they cannot restrict you the access to suspicious websites, and disallow you to download any files, including malware. But, if you will help your antivirus to work, instead of preventing him from working, the system will be protected. There are two methods to achieve this effect:

  • If you're not prepared to absolutely abandon the use of not official content, you should carefully examine all utilities that you are going to install. Trojans most often lurk under the guise of helpful utilities such as AV tools, browser games, driver updaters, system optimizers, browsers and search engines. Do not install suspicious utilities from this list, and while another unlicensed program is installing - watch closely at the installation, canceling all suggestions for getting extra software.
  • The safest option is to totally quit using software of dubious background. These principles related to any software downloaded not from website of its developer or trusted vendors. Naturally, all cracked replicas of licensed utilities must also be treated as probably dangerous. If you stop downloading suchlike software, the probability of penetration would be decreased to minimal, and antivirus will be able to quickly cope with it.

Abide to these directions and you will immediately feel their fruits: your machine will become fast, clean and workable, and will stay so for years.
