What is Walliant trojan

Experts say that Trojan viruses make up the biggest part of all malicious programs, due to usability and effectiveness. The very common examples of such tasks are updating and maintaining already installed malware, theft of passwords and other data, botnets creation or spying on the user. Despite the numerous strengths, Trojan viruses have one important weakness - they can't get into victim's machine without his help. In recent years, customers think that any dangerous or unwanted tools are viruses, but strictly speaking, viruses, instead of Trojans, can automatically spread and infect the defenseless systems. Trojans can’t clone themselves, and cannot infect the machine without victim's help. The only thing that Trojan can do before entering the computer is waiting until some naive customer decides to download it and installs it. We say all this to show one easy idea: you should keep Trojans away from the computer, since it's very difficult to get rid of them then to neutralize them.

The majority of users believe that to neutralize virus penetration they just need to purchase an antivirus, but it's wrong. Antiviral utilities are very helpful, but they can't restrict you the access to malicious websites, and forbid you to download any files, including malware. To ensure protection, you need to reconsider your habits, and behave prudently on the Internet. There are two ways to achieve this effect:

  • If you're not ready to completely abandon the use of unlicensed utilities, you must thoroughly examine each downloaded utility. Trojans most often hide beneath the guise of useful tools such as AV software, driver updaters, browsers, browser games, system optimizers and search engines. Do not install suspicious tools from the above list, and while installing another pirated tool - watchfully follow the installation, canceling all proposals for getting additional programs.
  • The safest method is to completely quit using tools of dubious background. These rules concern any tool downloaded not from the official developer websites or licensed vendors. Of course, the cracked replicas of useful tools should also be treated as probably dangerous. If you stop using such utilities, the chances of penetration would be lowered to a minimum, and AV-software will be able to quickly deal with this minimum.

Follow these rules and you will clearly see their result: the device will become workable, clean and quick, and will remain so for years.
