The reason why this type of malware has been named after the ancient myth about the wooden horse used by the Greeks to infiltrate the city of Troy has to do with the fact that Trojan viruses are very stealthy and difficult to detect once inside the victim’s PC.

Such malicious software actually relies on your naiveté, and the potential weaknesses of your operating system or of the programs installed on your PC.

What purpose might hackers use JS Agent EDB Trj for?

Similarly to most Trojans, JS Agent EDB Trj might get utilized by the hackers in various ways. It all really depends on the intentions of the criminals who have designed this virus. The most usual of the manners in which they could be used are:

  • Bothering activities like spying on everything that you do online such as signing in credentials; web-based communication; online banking and/or making payments. In fact, your identity as a whole in terms of the info about you that is available online might also be what hackers seek to acquire, modify or exploit in a certain way.;
  • Destructive activities such as deleting some files for good; crashing your entire system; or making it act as a bot and spread spam or even mine crypto currencies for the hackers. ;
  • Letting an even more hazardous malware than it is itself infect your PC. Ransomware-based viruses might be described as some the worst and the most bothering programs you can ever come across while surfing the web. They may use Trojans to invade your devices, and following that – they may do a research on your most regularly accessed files, and encode them all.
