What is a Trojan Virus in general?
A “Trojan horse” or simply a “Trojan” is a kind of malicious software, that usually comes disguised as some legitimate-looking software piece or some other type of content. Trojans might be used by hackers that want to steal information from the users’ PCs. Usually, users are deceived by some form of social engineering into opening and running Trojans on their computers. The minute a virus such as Trojan.Script.AngryPower.gen gets activated, it may authorize the cyber-criminals to spy on the affected users, steal their sensitive information, or gain backdoor access to their systems.
Types of Trojans depending on the malware’s goal:
Deleting, locking, altering or destroying some data are some of the most common ways in which such malware is used. It is also possible that the performance of the affected computer may be disrupted.
Ways to protect yourselves against the Trojans:
It isn’t that hard to prevent a virus from damaging your PC. You simply need to be more careful about your browsing habits such as the web pages that you tend to visit or the sources of software you use. You also have to be very cautious when it comes to your emails. We advise you to not open any unwanted or unexpected ones or such that are from unknown senders. Another way you can protect yourself is to stay clear of any malicious-looking ads on your screen for they might lead to malware infections of many kinds.
An important factor is that Trojan horses are not able to get self-replicated like computer viruses and worms and are classified according to the kind of actions they may be able to perform on the infected device in the following way:
Remote access Trojans:
These Trojans may allow the hackers to take over any contaminated machine from a distance. Such viruses might enable their authors to do anything they see fit with the targeted devices including the acts of spreading, acquiring, launching and destroying files, broadcasting data and restarting the system they have infected. Remote control Trojans may be used for uniting a group of affected systems which is known as a zombie network (and might be exploited for a wide range of illegal purposes).
These malicious programs` purpose is to steal personal information about your online banking systems, electronic payment systems, or your credit or debit cards or gain access to your banking accounts through phishing schemes.
Trojans used for exploit:
Those malicious programs which may include data or code are referred to as Exploit Trojans. They may take advantage of any vulnerability within software that is running on your PC.
This form of Trojans has been created with the purpose of hiding some particular processes or activities on the user’s computer. Their sole purpose is to prevent other viruses from getting detected. Therefore, these viruses might allow other viruses to run for a longer period of time on the infected device.
Backdoor Trojan Horses:
This type of Trojan Horses are able to download other viruses into an already infected machine. For instance, such a Trojan can infect a certain computer with versions of Ransomware.
Viruses of this sort may be used by hackers both in order to install Trojans and other different forms of malware or to stop the detection of such. Unfortunately, the elements of your personal computer can`t be scanned for this kind of Trojans by many of the conventional anti-virus programs.
Fake Anti-malware Trojans:
Such virus-based programs are known to simulate the activity of some common anti-malware software programs. These viruses are designed to steal money from the customer in the form of payment for the detection and removal of threats that aren’t really there.
The Trojan instant-messaging apps thief:
The affected consumer`s usernames and passwords for instant messaging apps such as Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Pager, Skype etc. might be stolen by these Trojan-based programs.
The infamous Trojan-Spy viruses could keep an eye on how you use your system. They do that by tracking the information entered by your keyboard, taking screenshots and even enumerate the running apps.
The nature of the Trojan Trojan.Script.AngryPower.gen:
The worst about these viruses is that in many cases there is no way you can predict what is going to happen to your PC. The purpose of the virus is only visible when it reveals its presence and starts carrying out its agenda. Furthermore, many Trojans can be repurposed remotely, after they have already attack a certain PC. In Trojan.Script.AngryPower.gen’s case, we can’t tell you what its main goal would be in each separate instance of an infection by it.
