What are the likely usages of a virus like Fuerboos?

Usually, such viruses are programmed to cause harm to you and your device. A great illustration of that is the fact that the cyber-criminals creating such malware might set it to destroy files or even format disks and drives. In case of such a scenario, the affected users could lose some really important data.

One more probable way of exploiting Fuerboos is for the purpose of tracking all of the affected users’ personal details that get entered while the user is connected to the web. No credentials or accounts will ever be safe provided that this happens. As a result, you may end up broke or all your social media accounts might get hijacked, modified or exploited for various dishonest purposes.

One more terrible thing, which a lot of Trojans could be programmed to achieve is the exploitation of your system resources. Your device might get transformed into a bot and all its resources could end up getting used by the criminals for sending spam or distributing other forms of malware.

Likely sources of such a common Trojan horse virus:

Such dangerous viruses may have as many sources as their possible purposes. You could get acquainted with such a malware if you are not quite careful while dealing with your emails. Any letter or any of its attachments (photos and documents and .exe files) could be distributing Trojans.

Furthermore, the fake ads that might appear on every page on the web might redirect you to sites and platforms, containing other malware, and you could get infected immediately and automatically. Some other places where you may come across Fuerboos are: inside any illegitimate web pages that share movies, videos, software or other information for free.

Can prevention help you?

Our ultimate tip for you is to build some habits when it comes to browsing the Internet. What we think as the best practice is to not completely trust anything that comes from the online world. It’s always better to use only a limited number of software sources that are reliable and have good reputation than to download anything from not really trustworthy places. Moreover, it is obligatory that you should open and read only the emails that do not seem fishy and never download any attachments if you can’t verify that they are safe. Also, make sure you avoid all the suspicious torrents, movies, web pages or software offered online.
