Trojan Win32/Casdet rfn
Trojan Win32/Casdet rfn is a hazardous PC virus capable of spying on you and starting harmful processes in the computer. Trojan Win32/Casdet rfn operates as a Trojan Horse infection, when located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, using different stealth and disguise techniques to attack the systems of its potential victims.
Trojan horse threats, in general, are known for their stealthiness and overall lack of infection symptoms. However, sometimes there may be certain signs that could indicate that there’s something wrong with the system and thus draw the user’s attention to the virus’ presence.
Among those potential symptoms are unusual software errors, system sluggishness and slowdowns due to excessive use of resources such as RAM, CPU time, and even GPU (even though no resource-demanding programs are being run at the moment). Another concerning symptom that should tip you off about the presence of some kind of problem is the appearance of the Blue Screen of Death on your monitor. In other words, this is when your computer crashes and isn’t able to start normally so a blue screen with an error message written on is displayed. All of the aforementioned symptoms, however, could be linked to many different issues and a Trojan horse infection is only one of them. Nevertheless, if you have indeed noticed any of those concerning red flags, or any other disturbing irregularities on your computer, we strongly recommend that you check your system for the presence of the Trojan Win32/Casdet rfn Trojan.

Is Trojan Win32/Casdet rfn dangerous?
File and software corruption is one of the most common forms of harm that Trojans cause to the attacked machine. The BSOD crashes and errors we mentioned earlier are oftentimes triggered by the damage that Trojans cause to the system.
Another thing that Trojans like Trojan Win32/Casdet rfn and Wup.exe tend to be tasked with is taking over the attacked machine and allowing the hackers to remotely control it through the Trojan. Once such control is established, one of the most common things the infected machine gets tasked with is the mining of cryptocurrencies. Some Trojans create whole botnets of infected systems, all of which are forced to mine such currencies and then send them to the hackers’ virtual wallets. Spam message distribution and Denial of Service attacks are also commonly conducted by the computers from the Trojan’s botnet.
The third Trojan horse use we will mention here is the distribution of other viruses and, most notably, that of Ransomware cryptoviruses. Oftentimes, after a Trojan like Trojan Win32/Casdet rfn attacks a given computer, it will secretly download the Ransomware onto the already infiltrated machine and then the Ransomware will begin the lock the user’s files.
If you want to prevent any of this from happening to you, we strongly advise you to make use of the removal guide you will find below and, with its help, remove Trojan Win32/Casdet rfn and make your computer safe and secure once more.
