There is no end to Trojan infections lurking in the darkest corners of the internet, waiting for their prey. Trojan.StealthProxy.B is that kind of a parasite that can get into your computer without you even noticing it and then ruin your system before you can do anything about it. The thing you should know about Trojan.StealthProxy.B is that it cannot spread on its own. It means that it has to be delivered by some other program or get into your system via a drive-by download.
When Trojan.StealthProxy.B gets into your computer, it needs to be executed to install itself into your system. If this Trojan comes with a shareware program that you have downloaded for yourself, that means you execute the Trojan as well, along with the program. It is possible to download the Trojan when you are looking for something related to the popular game Diablo 2. That is not to say that the game is involved in distributing the Trojan, the parasite is simple configured the way to have files similar to the game (like Diablo II.exe), and the installation file might appear on your search.
During the installation Trojan.StealthProxy.B adds values to your Registry entry and because of that the parasite loads automatically whenever you turn on your computer. It also creates a file called “wupdte002” in the C:\documents and settings\administrator. The presence of the file can indicate that you have been infected by this Trojan, but of course, you do not search for weird files in your computer and this information can be useful when you are looking for the symptoms of the exact infection AND when you know what you should be looking for.
The Trojan can also modify your internet browser settings which in the end allow it to connect to the internet and download a file from a remote server. The file that the Trojan downloads from the remote domain carries the configurations for the parasite. Since the Trojan can perform various malicious actions based on the hacker’s wishes, the behavior of the parasite depends on what kind of file it downloads once it connects to that server. Trojan.StealthProxy.B can easily download other types of malware onto your computer and expose your system to third parties, thus putting your personal information in danger.
The main point is that this parasite can cause detrimental damage to your computer and you must remove Trojan.StealthProxy.B from your system as soon as possible. Do not hesitate to invest in a good malware removal tool if you do not know how to deal with Trojans on your own. A powerful antimalware program will terminate Trojan.StealthProxy.B automatically and protect your from similar threats in the future.
