Trojan.generickdz is a malicious program that uses disguise to enter the system and starts a number of harmful processes and tasks in it once inside. Security researchers find Trojan.generickdz to be a Trojan Horse and advise users to quickly remove it before it causes them a major harm.
Trojan.generickdz primarily attacks Windows computers with the intention of conducting different illegal activities in them without being detected. This Trojan is an advanced piece of malware that commonly spreads through spam, malicious e-mail attachments, bogus pop-up alerts, torrents, hacked software installers and infected web links that initially look intriguing but, once clicked, silently inject the infection into the computer.
The malicious actions of a virus like Trojan.generickdz, UsualsPCAP and Wup.exe are entirely dictated by the hackers who control it. The malware can effectively be programmed to collect personal information from the infected computer. This can happen through your own webcam and microphone if the Trojan is set to take audio and video records of your conversations and online or offline activities on the screen. Trojan.generickdz can also collect information about your contacts and keep track of your keystrokes in order to reveal your passwords, online banking details, credit/debit card credentials and other information to the hackers which could later exploit this data for personal abuse, theft, online fraud or blackmail.
In the worst-case scenario, Trojan.generickdz.67478 can allow its criminal creators to remotely control the entire machine without your knowledge or permission and to let them install new software, modify, replace, erase or corrupt existing files, or start secret malicious processes and tasks inside the system. Trojan.generickdz.67478 can even transform the computer into a bot with the aid of such an infection and set it to mine cryptocurrencies for them or distribute spam and other viruses such as Ransomware, or Spyware.
In general, the hidden activities that a single Trojan can launch can make the system nearly unusable, because its resources will be exploited to the maximum without leaving room for the tasks and processes that you want to run. As a result, the computer may start to crash, freeze or become unresponsive due to resource overload and you won’t be able to do anything until you detect and remove the Trojan.
However, eliminating the Trojan is the most difficult part since these threats usually never have clear symptoms of their presence. Many victims realize that they have been infected with a Trojan weeks or months after the actual contamination has happened and this usually happens when they face the harmful consequences of its attack. Moreover, when such threats are inside the computer, they can frequently mimic regular system files and processes so that the person who is attempting to remove them will be confused. For this reason, using a professional removal tool is the best way to deal with an infection like Trojan.generickdz, especially if this is the first time you are faced with a Trojan Horse. Another alternative is to use a manual removal guide like the one that you will find below. If you decide to go for it, however, our recommendation is to follow the instructions closely and do no experiments if you are not sure which files exactly you need to remove.
