The NumidaPCAP Virus

Being among the latest variants of Trojan horses, NumidaPCAP should be removed from the infected device immediately. The detection of this threat, however, is the main challenge that victims are faced with because, normally, there are hardly any visible symptoms that would give the Trojan horse away.

Trojans are perhaps the most well-known type of malicious software on the web and there are some good reasons for that. Namely, over 70% of all malware attacks that happen on the internet are caused by Trojan-based viruses. This just shows that threats like NumidaPCAP, UsualsPCAP, PlazyPCAP are the tool of choice for many cyber criminals that seek to cause harm to users’ computers. There are, however, some other factors that contribute to the enormous popularity of these threats. One is the amazingly flexible essence of these viruses. They can be programmed to accomplish a variety of tasks on behalf of their creators including espionage, theft of passwords and digital files, system corruption, cryptocurrency mining and more. This significantly distinguishes them from, for example, ransomware, spyware, rootkits and other harmful pieces of software. Furthermore, Trojans are famous for their stealth. These infections seldom have symptoms that would reveal their presence to the victims. And this enables them to complete their agenda without being interrupted or detected.
