Being a successor of Kronos, Ares is another trojan designed to collect banking data. Trojans are programs, which force the download of other malware. In our case, Ares is meant to install a program-spy called Ares Stealer. Once it settles down your system, the trojan will be able to read and record sensitive data entered during the usage. The main target is usually passwords, credit/debit card numbers, usernames, e-mail, and other banking-related information used on various websites or desktop applications. The worst part is that some users might not know that they are surveilled. They continue using and entering confidential data, which leaks to servers of cybercriminals. All credentials and other types of private intel collected by swindlers can be abused to make online transactions, sell your personal details, and more. Overall, the most obvious sign of trojans infesting your system is unusual computer behavior.
Also known as Trojan:Win32/Wacatac, Wacatac is a trojan-type infection that is capable of doing truly irreversible damage. Trojans are generally the virus used to distribute other malicious software. When trojan gets on your computer, it forces so-called "chain installations". The amount of software that can be delivered may vary broadly, however, the most popular is Ransomware that encrypts files stored on your PC asking to pay a ransom as a result. Unfortunately, these infiltrations can lead to massive privacy loss by handing personal data to third parties for making a profit. IP addresses, passwords, credentials, and location are often the most valuable information that extortionists are looking for. Since the rise of Bitcoin, trojans also started distributing crypto mining software that mines cryptocurrencies without users' consent. These manipulations require a vast amount of system resources which can slow down the computer or even lead to the entire system collapse. Sometimes, trojans can contain adware and browser hijackers that disseminate deceptive ads and redirects. This can also lead to system infection that can put you in a meltdown.
Zloader (also known as DELoader and Terdot) is a malicious piece of software classified as a virus-type program. Research shows that it is distributed through third parties web pages displaying fabricated error notifications like this
Silver Sparrow is a malicious piece designed and delivered to Mac-based systems. At the time of research, experts identified that Silver Sparrow acts as a backdoor program meant to distribute other types of malware. The virus takes over your PC giving full access to cybercriminals. Strangely enough, none of the investigation reports showed Silver Sparrow to be delivering the intended malware. Therefore, from this point time, it is quite hard to get what does the purpose of frauds stands by. Either way, it is a hundred percent virus, which exposes your data to third-party eyes. Also, it is noteworthy that Silver Sparrow exists in two versions: first targets solely Intel x86_64 system architectures, whilst the other spreads onto M1 ARM64 as well. In fact, there are other types of malware that follow the same goals - trojans are one of those using chain infections to spread malicious programs as well. All of the previously mentioned facts are just enough to make the removal of Silver Sparrow urgent. Follow our guide below to perform the deletion successfully.
CryLock Ransomware literally forces users to cry about their data that has been encrypted after sudden penetration. Being a variation of Cryakl Ransomware, this is one of the viruses of such type use cryptographic algorithms to ensure strong encryption and demand paying a ransom. Unlike other ransomware, that use one mutual extension for each file, this specific program assigns a new name to affected files that consist of cybercriminal's e-mail, victim's personal ID, and random three-digits extension. For instance, non-infected 1.mp4 will be retitled to 1.mp4[grand@horsef***er.org][512064768-1578909375].ycs, 2.mp4[grand@horsef***er.org][512064768-1578909375].wkm, and similarly. Some victims experienced a change like this 1.mp4[email@example.com][sel1].[7478ECA4-42759A9D]. Once the process has finished, CryLock will display a window in front of victims that contains ransom details.
