Powered by Capricornus Virus – method of delivery
You probably don’t recall installing Powered by Capricornus Virus on your own. This is because Powered by Capricornus Virus was part of a software bundle or was posing as a different file or program and you had no idea about its presence when you installed the executable containing Powered by Capricornus Virus.
A program bundle is actually an installer for a certain program that has a couple of more programs “bundled” inside of it.
- This means that when you install the main program and proceed with the Default installation option the installer will assume “by default” that you also want the extra programs and install them without asking you for permission. To avoid such a situation we strongly recommend people to stop using the Default option of program installers.
Always select Advanced – it only takes a couple of extra clicks, but you get insight and control over what programs exactly are going to get installed and you also have the option of blocking any or all of the extra programs from installing. Try to always use this option, as the extra programs are seldom useful – it’s much more likely to end up with something like Powered by Capricornus Virus in your computer, because the pure time it takes to remove it is quite long.
- Files obtained from torrents, warez and online storage sites may be particularly dangerous.
Such sites also often employ fake download buttons. If you click on the wrong button a download containing a file matching the name of the file you sought for. Unfortunately this file is a fake and the only thing it contains is a virus infected executable. Other possible problems may come from:
- Spam email and especially their attachments. Obviously the main theme here is to confuse you into believing this isn’t spam, but something sent to you “by mistake.”
We strongly encourage anyone to shy away from opening and downloading anything from an email unless you know 100% it is legitimate.
