The malicious program we will be describing in the passages below is indeed one of the most dangerous viruses ever developed. Its name is Vigram.A Virus and represents the Trojan horse malware category. Maybe, on hearing Trojans, the old Greek legend about the Trojan War comes to your mind. In fact, this awful virus acts exactly as the wooden horse from the worldwide popular myth did.
Most commonly, such a program infiltrates your PC silently, without any sign of its existence and activities. These viruses really depend on the vulnerabilities of your system or of the programs installed on it. What’s more, Vigram.A Virus might not have come on its own, since such malware often brings Ransomware along with it. In the informative paragraphs below we will further explain the effects that Vigram.A Virus could possibly have on your device. After it has already infiltrated your PC, this Trojan normally reveals its true plans. Nonetheless, the number of the probable ways of exploiting such malware is very big and also very diverse. Here we will mention only the most used methods of distributing and exploiting such malicious programs.
The web is a dark and malware might be lurking almost everywhere:
The sources that can spread Vigram.A Virus are not limited to just a few. This malicious piece may hide inside torrents, shareware and video-spreading web platforms, as well as other contagious webpages. In addition, it can also be in letters in your email (and their attachments, to top it off). Oftentimes merely opening text documents or images that come as attachments might get you infected. To be more precise, you can never be absolutely positive where this Trojan has come from if your PC has already caught it. What is awfully disturbing about the distribution of this malware is that it could benefit from all the possible weaknesses your operating system or the programs installed in it may have. It is also possible that you may indeed have no clue that your OS or any of the installed software on it is likely to get hacked. So provided that they really are in some way vulnerable, Vigram.A Virus may use this fact against you and infect and exploit your computer for dishonest purposes.
In case you need an example of a program/system weakness, one of the typical ones is an antimalware app that hasn’t been updated recently and is incapable of protecting your device in the best way. So, make sure that you don’t miss any updates or renewals of the license of your antivirus tool, because in this way you could risk getting contaminated by many different malware versions.
What could cyber criminals be using Vigram.A Virus for?
In its capacity of a standard Trojan virus, Vigram.A Virus has all the typical features of any other member of this category. Really, its probable usages might be varying, depending on the intentions of the scammers who have created and spread this malware. To be more precise, all Trojans are well-known for their multifunction attitude. Some of the manners in which they could be exploited are:
- Various intrusive activities like spying on all of your online activities such as entering passwords or your private online communication; and/or making any payments. Indeed, your personal identity in terms of the data regarding you that could be found on the Internet might also be what hackers want to access and use.
- Some destruction-focused activities such as deleting particular files; even crashing your system as a whole; or exploiting it as a bot for sending spam as well as mining cryptocurrencies.
- Aiding some even more dangerous forms of malware to infiltrate your computer. Ransomware-type viruses may be surely the worst and the most harassing viruses you could ever come across online. They may use Trojans to invade your devices, and following that – they might do a research on your most regularly accessed data, and encrypt it all. Then, after that, some ransom demands will be sent to you in the form of a harassing notification and you will be blackmailed into paying some ransom online criminals.
