More about Ditertag.B

Ditertag.B is a dangerous malware program which belongs to the Trojan Horse family. Viruses like this one are capable of sneaking inside the targeted computer and executing a number of different malicious and illegal tasks without getting noticed by the user. Most Trojans tend to get distributed disguised as seemingly harmless software. The idea is that the user gets tricked into thinking that the malware file isn’t something malicious and opening it. Upon executing the malware file, the Trojan gets integrated inside the computer’s system. However, it is highly-likely that even at this point, the user could remain clueless regarding the infection. This sneaky behavior of Trojans is what makes them so particularly dangerous and difficult to intercept. In terms of functionality, as we said above, a typical representative of this malware category could be programmed and used to carry out all kinds of unwanted actions within the infected machine. In the next paragraph, we will give you some examples of what a Trojan might be capable of doing.

What can a typical Trojan do?

There are very many different ways a Trojan Horse virus can get used. Some of the most common ones will be listed below but there are also many other possible uses of viruses like Ditertag.B that will not be mentioned here, so keep that in mind.

  • Backdoor – Trojans have this noxious ability to load and sneak other malware into your PC. In this case, the virus would be called a “backdoor” as it would allow another piece of malware to infect your computer without the need for you to do anything. Commonly, Trojan Horses are used to spread Ransomware – another particularly nasty virus type that locks the files of the user and blackmails the victim for a ransom payment.
  • Damage to the computer system – some Trojans also might be capable of corrupting your system by deleting or modifying important system files or Registry keys leading to freezes, errors, Blue Screen crashes, computer slow-down and in some of the worst cases, inability of the PC to boot into Windows.
  • Botnet – this sort of malware is also famous for creating networks of infected PCs that are all used to carry out tasks such as cybercurrency mining and distribution of spam online messages. In such a case, the infected PC would be forced to use most of its resources for whatever task the hacker wants it to complete.
  • Spying on you – A lot of Trojans can also keep tabs on what you do on your PC. The virus might try to learn your online accounts’ credentials or take snapshots of your PC screen. In some instances, it might even turn on your webcam without you being aware of that and use it to stalk you.

Important tips

One of the most essential pieces of advice that we can give you here is to always make sure that your system and the software programs on your PC have been updated to their latest versions so that there won’t be any known unpatched vulnerabilities. Also, always have a good antivirus at your disposal since it can be very difficult to manually detect a Trojan – oftentimes there aren’t any symptoms triggered by such a virus.

In order to keep your machine safe in future, make sure that you don’t go to any web addresses where such malware might lurk. Normally, you must avoid shady and suspicious sites, e-mails and other web messages that could be spam or fishy-looking online ads as those are among the most commonly used methods for spreading Trojans and infecting computers with such viruses.
