Trojan.Yoddos

Trojan.Yoddos is a malicious system threat that lowers down Internet Explorer’s security and communicates with its control and command center to receive configurations and instructions from its designer. Based on what the hacker wants it to do, Trojan.Yoddos can either go on and execute a denial of service attack against a particular website, or download other files onto your computer and cause an even greater infection.

Judging from the fact that mzyqmh.exe process file is part of the Trojan’s composition, Trojan.Yoddos is capable of lowering down your overall computer security. It resists interrogation by security products and functions as a backdoor that allows malicious programs to bypass normal authentication and access your computer without you noticing it. In fact, the said process is the first evidence of the infection, because Trojan.Yoddos does not have an interface, and if you see mzyqmh.exe in your Task Manager, then you are really infected with the Trojan.

Once installed Trojan.Yoddos loads automatically, because it drops a RUN key in the Registry that allows it to run together with Windows. It also hijacks such legitimate Windows processes as explorer.exe, iexplore.exe and svchost.exe in order to avoid detection by security products. When Trojan.Yoddos hides itself from your system’s security it starts its dirty deeds first of all by connecting to a remote server and receiving instructions on how to act further on.

Depending on the instructions, Trojan.Yoddos can launch a DoS attack on a specific website (for example, the blogging website LiveJournal has been known to be a constant victim of such attacks). Also, considering that it is a backdoor, Trojan.Yoddos can also connect to a malware-related website to download other dangerous programs. It can actually go as far as shut down your computer altogether, so it is more than obvious that this parasite is very annoying and dangerous to your system.

Remove Trojan.Yoddos from your computer automatically with a legitimate safeguard application and save yourself the trouble of picking Trojan-related files one after one from your Registry. Manual removal is a tedious task if you are not computer savvy, so better use a program that will terminate the Trojan in a jiffy.
