The Oneetx.exe Virus

The Oneetx.exe virus is a Trojan Horse infection that is notoriously difficult to detect, making it a serious threat to computer users. Cybercriminals create malicious programs of the Trojan type (such as Pinaview and Taskbarify) with the intention of carrying out harmful operations and engaging in illegal activities on infected computers.
