There is probably no Internet user who has never heard about the Trojan Horse computer threats. The representatives of this malware category are, by far, some of the nastiest infections that you may encounter while browsing the World Wide Web and they are responsible for more than 70% of all the malicious contaminations worldwide. The secret to their success lies in their lack of symptoms and the stealthy methods of distribution which they can use in order to sneak inside the users’ computers. Most commonly, the Trojans are distributed via spam emails, malicious attachments, fake ads, misleading links, cracked and pirated software, torrents, etc. Usually, they are hidden either in a hyperlink, which you are asked to click on, or in an attached file, which you may also be asked to open. In this case, the file may be the most harmless-looking thing: an archive, a document, a PDF file, an image or a video. When you open it, however, the virus is automatically loaded into your system where it hides very deeply and begins to act in accordance with what it has been programmed for. A single Trojan Horse can damage the system in a number of ways and can perform a variety of criminal tasks in the background if left to operate for a sufficient period of time. In this article, we will discuss a specific representative of this nefarious malware group called Beapy. If you’ve come to us because you have found this nasty Trojan in your system, then you definitely need to read the information that follows and take action to safely remove the infection before anything bad and irreversible happens. The removal guide presented below may be very useful for you because it contains a set of manual steps and a professional removal tool which can help you locate and delete the infected files that are related to the Trojan. We highly recommend that you follow the removal instructions exactly as they are written or use the removal tool to avoid accidental deletion of vital system files which, in turn, can lead to irreversible consequences for the stability of your OS.

What are Trojans used for?

Trojans can have several targets on your PC at once and that’s why it is essential to remove them immediately after you notice them. Sadly, we cannot tell you with certainty what exactly Beapy might be programmed to do in each instance of an infection by it but we can give you an idea of what it might be capable of by listing some of the most common consequences of a typical Trojan Horse attack.

For instance, most Trojan-based viruses can do an excellent job at inserting other viruses and malware programs such as Ransomware or Spyware and deleting certain files on the victim’s computer, thus causing serious data loss. Another common use of this type of malware is for espionage and unauthorized remote control. The hackers behind Beapy may be interested in spying on your actions in order to steal some sensitive information or passwords and login credentials, which can later help them blackmail you, drain your bank accounts or steal your online profiles. Another option is the real-time surveillance, during which your webcam and microphone may get hacked and directly stream what’s happening in your room to the hacker’s servers. Of course, those are only a small number of all the potential forms of harm that may occur and that is precisely why you must never allow a Trojan to stay on your computer for long.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—-Windows—CurrentVersion—Run– Random
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—Internet Explorer—-Main—- Random
