Decocash.com

Decocash.com belongs to the infamous malicious software category of Trojan horse viruses. Decocash.com is therefore highly dangerous and must be removed from your system immediately.

Decocash.com

Decocash.com, is a spam and scam website whose purpose is to use a fake Coca Cola customer satisfaction survey to trick visitors into participating and if they participate they can get $200. But all this fraudulent website (decocash.com) does is redirect visitors to spam and survey websites that trick visitors into buying unwanted goods/services or send their personal information to scammers who use it fraudulently.

Decocash.com is among the latest Trojan horse threats released and due to its novelty it’s been successful in infecting a fairly large number of victims. Trojans are by no means to be taken lightly and if you have reason to believe that this one has found its way into your OS, it’s important that you see to its removal as soon as possible.

What makes Trojans stand out from the crowd of other malicious software is their unique versatility. These types of malicious programs can be designed to accomplish a wide variety of different malicious tasks. Furthermore, they can even execute multiple tasks one after the other on your machine.  And on top of that, viruses like Decocash.com are also notorious for their ability to remain hidden in the infected system.

Typically, software of this kind doesn’t exhibit any symptoms that would directly give it away and would alert the user about its presence. This, of course, gives it another advantage, and only adds to its level of danger.

This is also why Trojans are largely preferred by hackers and cybercriminals over other types of malicious software. So much so that Trojans are responsible for anywhere between 75% and up to 90% of all malicious attacks, depending on the year.

  • Tip: If you think you have singled out the unwanted process but are not sure, it’s always a good idea to search for information about it on the Internet – this should give you a general idea if the process is a legitimate one from a regular program or from your OS or if it is indeed likely linked to the adware.
