  • How to prevent Trojan horse infection?

    WordPress Hosting on SSD Servers
    Trojan horses are hidden programs and threat to your computer once they get executed. They give control of your computer to a computer hacker. I would advise to follow 7 steps in order to prevent infection of Trojan horse on your computer:

    • Do not execute any program in your computer unless you believe it is from a trusted source.
    • Never open emails from unknown senders especially having attachments with the extensions .exe, .vbs.
    • Regularly update the anti-virus, anti-spyware on your computer on regular basis.
    • Regularly install the latest patches available of your Operating System.
    • Scan CDs, DVDs, pen drives or any external storage device for virus using anti virus software before using it.
    • Do not accept programs sent out from Instant Messaging applications.
    • When you download any program from Internet websites always scan them first before you use.

    Thanks!

    AVG identified the subject files as Trojans, and blocked them. The Trojans eventually got into AVG somehow and disabled the Resident Shield. I re-installed AVG a couple of times but the same thing would happen again. Every time I tried to delete any of the 10-folders that accumulated on my desktop, access would be denied. After a few days of fooling around with this stuff, I decided to attack it by renaming each of the 10 folders from Virus Removal Tool to some random set of keystrokes. I thought doing this would prevent the hackers programs from finding their own files and would allow me to delete them without incident. It worked and I was able to rid my desktop of all 10 folders; however, I soon found out that I was no

              In my opinion, the qustion is about how to prevent the invasion, not how to kill it. By the way, if you get crypto malware such vvv TeslaCrypt http ://nabzsoftware.com/types-of-threats/vvv-file, the removal does not resolve the issue as you get all your data locked down by the parasite. It is rather important to keep your software up to date as the virus often exploites vulnerabilities in long-since--not-updated apps...
