A Trojan Horse is a term that describes a specific group of malicious programs which can perform different harmful tasks such as collecting sensitive information, sneaking more malicious malware in the infected computer or messing with the system’s settings and data without the users’ knowledge. There are different Trojan-based infections but on this page we will discuss one recently reported threat called Win.Trojan.Bledoor . This new Trojan horse can get inside the system in many ways. As per the information that we have, it mostly spreads masked as an email attachment or inside pirated/cracked software, fake ads, fake update request and low-quality sites.

Like most Trojans, Win.Trojan.Bledoor can be used for many different purposes: for instance, it may download, and run other malware on a targeted computer. With its help, the criminals may secretly insert Ransomware, Spyware or other nasty viruses inside your PC, which can further damage your system and harass you.

Such an infection can very effectively operate as a keylogger and collect sensitive information, including login credentials, passwords, credit card information and more, and transfer it to the remote servers of the hackers who are in control of the malware. In addition, Win.Trojan.Bledoor may establish remote access to the infected computer and may allow the criminals to mess with your system as they please. Basically, the presence of such malicious software can result in file destruction, system corruption, loss of financial information or money, system performance issues, identity theft and other highly unpleasant consequences.

Unfortunately, threats like Win.Trojan.Bledoor often lack any visible symptoms and this makes them extremely difficult to detect on time. The good news is that most security programs can detect such malware but if yours is unable to deal with Win.Trojan.Bledoor , this could mean that the Trojan has disabled it or that the antivirus is out of data. In this case, our suggestion is to use the instructions in the removal guide below or the help of the suggested removal tool that’s also available in the guide in order to quickly and effectively remove the threat.

If you have any malicious software on your computer, you need to conduct a full system scan with updated security software so as to detect the malicious components in the system. Keep in mind though, that some advanced Trojans such as Win.Trojan.Bledoor may try to prevent you from opening, updating or starting the security program in your system in order to remain hidden and undisturbed while performing their criminal deeds. In those cases, a removal guide like the one above could be of great help as it may allow you to manually take care of the infection. Having a reliable malware removal tool is also important and that’s why it is a good idea to invest in professional software that can quickly locate the infection and eliminate it before any serious damage has been caused to the computer. Another plus of having a proper security program is that it can not only protect you form threats like Win.Trojan.Bledoor but also from other nasty infections or potentially unwanted programs which may heavily disturb the way your machine operates.
