Many security vendors flagged this EMP.dll file as malicious

A Trojan horse is a term used to describe a software type which is highly malicious and can creep into the device and cause numerous problems in it. That’s why, in general, all Trojan-based infections should be treated with caution and should be removed from the computer as soon as possible because if the users don’t take any actions against them, a serious system damage and corruption may occur. With the help of a single Trojan, the hackers can monitor the entire computer, delete and destroy data and even download other viruses like Ransomware and Spyware without the victim’s knowledge. EMP.dll Virus, Multi Speed Up or Altruistics are recent example of a Trojan horse infection that is capable of much more than just that. If not removed, this piece of malware can transfer various malicious files to and from the infected computer, collect personal information and track the user’s behavior.

  • 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.
  • If you find another suspicious process, open its File Location too.
  • Once in the File Location folder for the suspicious process, start testing all of the files that are stored there by dragging them to our free online scanner available below.

    What is EMP.dll Virus?

    EMP.dll Virus is a Trojan that can be programmed to perform a variety of malicious tasks and it is quite difficult to tell you with precision what exactly you should expect from it. For instance, the hackers can set the virus to detect system vulnerabilities and to exploit them to invite other malware inside the compromised computer.
    Or they can use the Trojan as tool for data destruction and system corruption and to set it to delete certain valuable information, databases, archives, etc. EMP.dll Virus can also be used to steal your passwords, online banking details and other sensitive information from your computer and to send it to remove servers. In some cases, the malware can disable the security programs in the system, block the victim’s access to malware-detection tools and security-related pages and redirect them to malware-injected websites and bogus software.

    Is EMP.dll Virus dangerous?

    All in all, EMP.dll Virus can be very dangerous and can have destructive effects on the device it has managed to compromise. That’s why the only way to save your computer is to quickly detect and remove all the files and components related to this Trojan.
    The main challenge that you may face, however, is that the Trojan-based threats are very difficult to detect and remove because they use camouflage to hide in the system and typically mimic some regular system files and processes with the idea to confuse the person who is trying to remove them. What is more, they rarely show visible symptoms of their activities. For this reason, in most cases, the victims need to arm themselves with reliable malware removal software that can scan the entire computer and deal with the infection in the safest possible way. Of course, there is also a manual method for Trojan removal and, in the guide below, you will find the detailed instructions for it.
