Trojans – different purposes and sources, but the same way of functioning
When we talk about Trojans, we have to say that this is the most widely spread kind of malware, as well as the one with the most varying purposes and contamination sources. We will mention all of them in the paragraphs that follow. Still, there are aspects of this viruses’ behavior that gather them all in one software family. Among them we can distinguish their ability to enter your PC silently and without any notion of an infection. Usually they exploit a possible weak spot of your system for that purpose. It could be the lack of an anti-malware tool or an outdated anti-virus program. It may also be a weakness of your operating system as a whole – for example, your system may become a little fragile if you do not update it regularly. Another very common thing among all Trojans is their capability of staying hidden and performing their evil goals, not giving a single sign of anything going wrong. Also, all Trojans are extremely malicious and could cause great trouble no matter what kind of problems they could provoke. The purposes of Isam_full.exe as well as all other versions of Trojans could be extremely diverse. Check the next paragraph to get an idea of what you are facing.
A variety of malicious functions, including:
