Below we are discussing one member of the biggest and most terrible cyber threat category nowadays – the notorious Trojan horse family. Its exact name is InvisiMole and it could be described as a subtle virus with very versatile nature, which could be set to carry out various insidious and illegal tasks once installed on your personal computer.

Also, we are attaching a special set of instructions down there to help you remove InvisiMole safely and successfully.
Trojans on the whole:
Trojans oftentimes have concrete or fixed purposes. The truth is that the hackers may use them for absolutely everything they want to achieve. Of course, some of their uses are more common than the others and below we have listed the most frequently encountered ones. So, most Trojan Horse versions could be able to:
- Sneak into your computer secretly and silently, giving no actual sign of their existence.;
- Load another virus inside your system – typically, a form of Ransomware. Ransomware viruses often use Trojans as their backdoors – tools for easily reaching a targeted PC and infecting it. If you have not yet heard anything about Ransomware, to briefly explain it – such viruses could encrypt the most commonly used file formats and then make you pay a ransom for decrypting them by threatening you to keep your data locked for good if you don’t obey the demand.;
- Infiltrate your professional network through your PC if it is infected: this bothering possibility is all about accessing some sensitive company info or really important business secrets. You may not personally be the victim of the hackers behind the virus, it could indeed be your workplace or employer.;
- Transform your device into a cryptocurrency mining tool – because of the vast hardware resources needed for crypto-mining, some cyber criminals might use Trojans to hijack your system and exploit all its processing power and GPU for mining bitcoins or some other cryptocurrency.;
- Make your PC a spam-sending instrument – your computer could be used as a spam-distributing centre because of the presence of InvisiMole inside it.;
- Stalk you personally- if the hackers are really after you or your identity, they might use such viruses to invade your system, turn on your webcam and mic, constantly watch you and gather details about you and later exploit the collected information?
Still, there could be a lot more uses, though, the ones above are really the most widely spread ones.

Where could Trojans lurk generally?
In general, Trojan horses might be hiding inside all all kinds of web content. Despite that, their most usual hiding places remain the following ones:
- Attachments of shady emails: some of the spam emails that you could receive might be contagious. Therefore, ensure you stay aware from all the letters that seem questionable and fishy.
- Fake system requests and virus-generated pop-ups (such as online ads) – the hackers could distribute such malware by generating fake web requests through compromised or illegal sites. Some of them could come in the form of fake update or other system requests or web advertisements. The general safety rule here is to NEVER EVER open any of the strange windows, tabs or pop-ups which might appear on your screen if they do not look trustworthy.
- Some torrents, freeware, various web pages – as everything online could be a Trojan source, you need to be particularly careful when downloading anything from the web. Make sure your sources could be trusted!
General safety rules:
It is crucial that you form some safe browsing habits such as making sure that your anti-malware tool is updated. This could spare you a lot of nerves in the future. It is also extremely important to mind the sources of software you use – stick to the ones that are reputable and trusted! What else could help you prevent an infection caused by InvisiMole is to safely handle your emails and always scan their attachments for malware.
