This page was designed to remove the Hadsruda bit Virus and works for every version of Windows. The Hadsruda bit Virus is a well-known addition to the growing Trojan Horse family. If you are unaware of what this means, the first part of this article was created to educate you in this. Hopefully you will read about the situation and not just jump on the Hadsruda bit Virus removal guide we have provided below. Most normal users believe Trojan horses to be the least damaging and annoying of the malware family. Unfortunately this is not just inaccurate, but the exact opposite of the truth. Trojan horses are very much the most intrusive viruses in terms of your personal space. They may not lock up your files (like a ransomware) or display incessant ads (like an adware), but they record practically everything you do, steal your cookies, passwords, account names, and everything else they can possibly scrape off your system… and in the end send it to whoever created the Hadsruda bit Virus. And not just that, but it can provide remote access to its creator into your PC without you even knowing it!
- To summarize – it is not out of the realm of possibilities that the virus has your online banking accounts under its rule (if there are any such accounts). We strongly urge you to deal with the malware infection and change all passwords afterwards.
How did the Hadsruda bit Virus find its way in your system?
The Trojan Horse family takes its name as a homage to the trick used in the eponymous war. This is obvious, but it can also tell you how exactly it got on your PC – by using trickery. To get inside your system, the Hadsruda bit Virus can do each of the following:
- Come in via a Macro Virus – meaning that if you suddenly got an email that’s supposed to be a mistake… well, it’s not. This type of scam has been going on for almost 20 years. The crux of it is that you get an email from a) a real institution (FBI, etc.), or b) a company sending you an invoice. The key moment is the confusion you experience. If you click on the invoice, you get infected, as simple as that.
- The Hadsruda bit Virus has other ways to come in, of course – for example, it can come with another software. Unlike adware, which resides in a legal grey area, trojan horses outright pull all the stops and hide in another program’s code. This is primarily on websites that have little to no reputation, and provide free downloads for freeware (freely distirbuted software). For example if you want to download a program called Foxit Reader, you google it and you come up with several websites. But unless you download it from the official website, you can’t really know what hides in the Foxit copies the other websites provide.
- A third option are torrent trackers. The same way it works with the installations, you just need to download an infected file and voila, the Hadsruda bit Virus is in your system and you have to remove it. Unlike the previous point, though, in this case the virus is not waiting for unpacking – it’s already in. So the moment the download completes, you are already in danger.
The final and most important note here is that Trojan horses are a primary player in people catching a ransomware – the boogeymen of PC viruses. It is unknown whether the Hadsruda bit Virus can cause this, but it is not out of the question either. Trojans are practically always the precursors to ransomware, so beware and follow the removal guide to the letter.
