Trojan Horses are, as you probably all know, highly dangerous malware threats that you really don’t want on your computer. And yet, though most users are aware of the things they need to avoid on the Internet in order to prevent potential attacks from this kind of malware programs, the number of Trojan Horse infections worldwide is still rather high. The Trojans are, in fact, one of the most widespread categories of malware and they are also one of the most commonly used cyber threats. One of the reasons for their popularity among the cyber criminal circles is their versatility and stealthiness. Trojans are oftentimes seen as multipurpose criminal tools that can be utilized in different ways. A couple of examples of how a Trojan Horse virus could potentially be used are:

  • Damaging the system and corrupting essential data on the computer as well as stealing information from the user’s hard-drives and online accounts.
  • Controlling the processes in the PC and even allowing the hackers to establish direct remote control over the computer and then use the machine in the next stages of their nefarious agendas.
  • Inserting more malware programs inside an already attacked PC. Some common examples of malware programs distributed via the help of Trojans are Rootkits, Spyware and Ransomware.
  • Spying on the victim without their knowledge and gathering sensitive info about them in order to later use that information for personal harassment and blackmailing.

Note that the examples provided her are merely a fraction of all possible uses of a threat of this malware category. In all possible instances, however, there is one remaining constant and that is the importance of acting quickly and decisively when it comes to eliminating the threat. Below, we have shown how one could remove a newly released Trojan threat named Malware Mouse from their PC so use the instructions if you think this virus might currently be within your system.

The Trojans and their stealthiness

Something important to be noted about Trojans such as Malware is that they can be quite difficult to spot while active inside a given computer. While at times Malware and other similar threats they might give themselves away by triggering errors, crashes and freezes as well as using up high amounts of RAM and processing power on the infected PC, there is no guarantee that such symptoms would always be present. This is why you must always have a way of spotting a Trojan the likes of Malware Mouse even when there are no indications of its presence. Normally, this could be done through the use of a reliable antivirus tool on your PC which is why we advise you to get one if you currently do not have such software at your disposal.

When it comes to stopping future infections from Malware and other similar malware before they have taken place, it’s important to remember to avoid online locations and content that may not be safe – things like spam messages, obscure advertisements, questionable sites, fishy-looking online requests and prompts as well as low-quality downloads are all potential sources of Trojans like Malware Mouse as well as of other malware and need to be avoided.


Type Trojan
Danger Level  High (Trojans are often used as a backdoor for Ransomware)
Symptoms  Excessive CPU and RAM use combined with frequent errors and other kinds of unusual system behavior might be an indication that there’s a Trojan on your computer.
Distribution Method Some of the more typically used methods are the spam message campaigns, the use of other (usually pirated) software as disguise for the malware as well as via different misleading online requests and update prompts.
Detection Tool
