This page aims to help you remove Cryptbase.dll Virus Trojan Horse. Our removal instructions work for every version of Windows.

The virus we are describing in the article below represents one of the most dangerous versions of malware ever designed. It is known as Cryptbase.dll virus and is a representative of the Trojan Horse virus category. You probably remember the ancient Greek tale about the Trojan War. This malicious program works exactly as the wooden horse from the legend did. In the most common case, such a program infiltrates your device silently, without any sign of its existence and way of functioning. Indeed, such viruses actually depend on your naiveté and the weaknesses of your system or those of the programs installed on your PC. What’s more, Cryptbase.dll may not come empty-handed, since such Trojans normally bring a Ransomware variant along. In the passages below we have further discussed the effects that Cryptbase.dll might have on your system. After infecting your PC, this Trojan usually doesn’t reveal its true intentions. And the number of the potential ways such viruses could be used in is as big as these ways are diverse. In the description you are going to read here we mention the ones that are most widely used.

The Internet is a dark space and all kinds of malware may be lurking there:

The sources that might be distributing Cryptbase.dll are not just five or six. This malicious program may hide inside torrents, shareware and various streaming websites, other contagious webpages; and inside letters from your email and their attachments. You may not believe it but opening text documents from there could get you infected. To be more precise, perhaps you will never really be sure where this Trojan has come from if you have already caught it. What is indeed irritating about the distribution of this malware is the fact that it could benefit from all the vulnerabilities your system or the programs on it may have. Most probably you have no actual idea of the fact that your operating system or any of the installed software is likely to get hacked. Still, in case there is such a possibility, Cryptbase.dll may use it against you and as a result invade your computer.

*In case you need an example of a program/system weakness, one of the most common ones is having an anti-virus program, which hasn’t been updated for some time and which can’t protect your device efficiently as a result of that. Therefore, we can advise you to never miss any updates or renewals of the license of your anti-malware software, because in such a way you risk getting infected by various malware versions.

What may hackers be exploiting Cryptbase.dll for?

As a standard Trojan, Cryptbase.dll has all the features typical of any other virus from this family. Indeed, its possible usages might be very different and really depend on the goals of the cyber-criminals who have created and unleashed this virus. For sure, all Trojan versions are characterized by a very multifunctional way of behaving. Some of the manners in which they could be used are:

  • All kinds of intrusive activities like spying on all of your online activities such as entering credentials; all your online communication; online banking activities such as making any payments. Really, your identity as a whole in terms of the info about you available on the Internet might also be what the scammers want to access, modify or use in any way.
  • Various destruction practices such as deleting particular files; even crashing your entire system; or making it act as a bot and distribute spam or mine crypto currencies.
  • Some cases of letting some even more hazardous forms of malware infect your PC. Ransomware-type viruses may be described as the worst and the most harassing programs you could ever come across on the Internet. They may use Trojans to infect your devices, after which they scan your system for your most treasured files and encrypt them all. Later on, you are going to be required to pay a ransom in exchange for the access to your already encrypted data. Truly, Ransomware is even worse than Trojans themselves.
