ICBundler is a Trojan horse virus that has recently been identified by security experts. ICBundler can be capable of causing extensive damage to your system and is a high-risk threat.
Trojans are generally considered to be among the most dangerous types of malicious software out there. And on top of that, they are also the most numerous category of malware. Statistically, more than 3 out of every 4 malware or virus attacks are the doing of Trojans.
There are several pretty good reasons why Trojan horse viruses have become the most popular form of malicious code. One is that they generally have the capacity to be exploited for a very wide range of different harmful tasks. We will cover examples of these in just a little bit so you have a rough idea of what you may be faced with.
PUA Win32 ICBundler
And another reason is that Trojans like PUA Win32 ICBundler are particularly stealthy and good at hiding in the infected system. This ensures that the threat can remain concealed over a longer period of time, which means that it has more time to benefit its creators in whatever way they’ve designed it to. There are typically never any symptoms of a Trojan horse infection. But on some rare occasions, depending on what the virus is up to exactly, there are signs that may tip you off about its presence. For instance, frequent BSoD crashes can often be the result of a Trojan’s activities.
What Trojans can do
For example, a virus of this type can be used to spy on you for whatever purpose. And this can be achieved using a variety of means, too. Trojans can grant the hackers behind them remote access to your PC, they can switch your webcam on and tap into your mic – all without you even suspecting it.
There are viruses like ICBundler that can record your keystrokes in order to, for instance, obtain passwords or other sensitive information that you type using your keyboard. This information, in turn, can be used to steal your identity, hack into your social media accounts, wipe your online banking accounts clean – the list goes on.
Another potential usage of ICBundler includes acting as a backdoor for other viruses. Most commonly, Trojans can be used as an aid for ransomware. And ransomware, in turn, are also extremely dangerous threats that could end up costing you dearly, depending on the type of information you store on your machine. Thus, if you’ve detected this threat on your machine, we strongly recommend that you scan your system for other malware or viruses.
