Icsant is an online system threat that needs no permission to infiltrate your computer and start various harmful processes and tasks on it. Due to its use of stealth techniques and its versatile nature, Icsant is considered to be a Trojan horse virus.
Representatives of the Trojan horse category are known to be some of the most powerful and most dangerous forms of Windows-based computer malware. There is hardly a computer user who doesn’t associate the term “Trojan horse” with something extremely dangerous and harmful to the computer. That’s why, to protect your system successfully against such threats, you need to know a bit more about their capabilities, their infection tactics and, of course, the tools and the methods that can help you remove these threats and prevent them in the future.
In this article, our focus will be specifically on a new Trojan horse version called Icsant which is related to Segurazo and SAntivirus. This threat seems to be extremely successful in sneaking inside a lot of computers and secretly running different malicious tasks in them without being detected. Even a robust antivirus program may have a hard time detecting and eliminating this threat, especially if you have not updated it for long. That’s why below we have prepared a detailed guide that explains all the steps to remove Icsant manually.
How can I know that Icsant is on my PC?
If you have the suspicion that Icsant has infected your computer but you are unable to detect it or spot any particular red flags, remember that the possible symptoms of a Trojan horse infection may differ significantly depending on the situation and the type of attack the malware is trying to perform. For example, if Icsant is trying to spy on you, keep track of your activities or collect sensitive information from your computer, it is very likely that there will be no clear indications of its presence. After all, the malware tries to remain hidden for as long as possible in order to successfully collect the data that it wants, or steal whatever it needs from you.
If Icsant is trying to corrupt and/or control your system, however, you may potentially notice some symptoms such as unexpected crashes, unusual program errors, noticeable system slow-downs and screen-freezes, or some other irregularities that occur without any particular reason. Alarming and obvious red flags, such as the ones described above, may also be detected if the Trojan tries to exploit the resources of your computer to complete various malicious tasks. These tasks may be the distribution of spam messages or the mining of cryptocurrencies through your computer. Some victims may realize that they have been compromised only after the Trojan has invited a bunch of other viruses (such as Ransomware, spyware, rootkits, etc.) in their computer.
In conclusion, Trojans may differ greatly in their symptoms and potential uses. The key is that you always check your computer with reliable security software if you suspect you might have been attacked with such malware. Hopefully, the steps in the guide below will help you locate and remove any malicious files related to Icsant before you have suffered any significant damage to your computer or data.
