Take the time to read this in its entirety. It will probably help you.
the NormFest Gmbh Virus has been identified by a number of reputable sources as a computer virus, namely a Trojan horse malware. This is a very distinctive and dangerous type of malicious software and in this article it is our aim to provide not only removal instructions for it, but a detailed information about the sort of threat you will be dealing with.
A Trojan horse is a term used for a computer program, that manages to deceive the end user by disguising itself to appear useful in some way so that it can persuade him to install it, but is malicious in its nature.
If the name seems familiar, it is probably because you have some recollection of the story about the Ancient Greek’s siege of the mighty city of Troy. For a number of years the overwhelming Greek armies besieged the city defenses to no avail and it was not until Odysseus suggested a covert operation, Only then Troy was defeated. A large wooden horse was devised and filled with Greek soldiers, then left at the city gates with the Greek armies in apparent retreat. The Trojans moved the wooden horse inside the city walls and celebrations ensued. That was until the soldiers inside the horse burst out and the rest was history as we know it. And you have pretty much the exact way in which the Trojan horse virus operates. It lures you to grant it permission to infiltrate your defenses and then paves the way for other malware creations to wreak havoc inside. Very often a Trojan is a harbinger for a Ransomware virus – probably the most notorious and despised variety of malicious software nowadays.
How did the NormFest Gmbh Virus manage to deceive you?
Or in other words how did you find yourself with a Trojan installed on your computer? A fair question deserving of an extensive answer. Almost always you were the victim of a compromised executable file (.exe extension). We will now list the ways in which this might have happened to you:
- Look out for files attached to e-mails in your inbox folder. Especially if they are from someone you don’t know. You should definitely scan any e-mail attachments before opening them, even more so if they are with an .exe extension. That should be a major red flag for you.
- If you are using web sharing websites or peer-to-peer sharing (torrents) we strongly recommend you carefully scan anything downloaded in such a way. These type of places are known as potential breeding grounds for malicious software, due to the weak form of control enforced upon what is being uploaded and shared.
- If you ever find yourself in the predicament of a missing or corrupted .dll file, please don’t look for it using your search engine. You will undoubtedly find it online, but more than likely if you chose to download it from unofficial sources you will be downloading a malware instead. Very often the malware in question will be a Trojan horse like the NormFest Gmbh Virus.
