What damage may WellMail cause?
One of the most common ways criminals use Trojans is for the secret insertion of other viruses, especially the highly popular Ransomware infections, Spyware and Rootkits. Basically, Trojans may serve as a backdoor for a particular virus or more than one malicious program and secretly invite them all into your system through previously detected vulnerabilities. Sadly, this is quite a popular practice among criminal circles that’s why if you have been infected with WellMail you should not overlook it and carefully scan the entire computer with reliable security software not only for this particular virus, but also for other malware.
WellMail may also have the potential to provide online criminals with access to your passwords, login information to specific websites, your online banking details and financial credentials, and other sensitive information that you store on your computer. This data can be collected through various crafty tactics. For instance, WellMail may either be set to keep track of your keystrokes, or allow the hackers to access your computer remotely. The Trojan may share with them your screen or even allow them to spy on you through your web camera and microphone.
Another common thing threats like WellMail and WellMess can be used for is turning your computer into a bot and exploiting its system resources fur running different malicious processes and tasks without your knowledge. For instance, without you suspecting, your computer may be set to mine cryptocurrencies for the hackers. It may also be used to spread spam or infect other machines in the same network with viruses and malware. That’s why the sooner you detect the infection and remove it, the greater the chance to save your computer and prevent the crooks from completing their criminal agenda.
