This is also something that sets apart the Trojan Horses from other malware forms like Ransomware and Spyware.

From system damage to data theft, from malware backdooring to remote control over the infected machine, those are all things that the Trojan Horse viruses may be capable of completing depending on what they have been programmed to do. “Your File Is Ready To Download” is an example of a Trojan Horse representative that may be able to carry out different malicious tasks inside its targeted computer and if you are on this page because of this exact infection, we maybe able to help you out.
