Many computer infections are waiting to infiltrate any unprotected system, and Worm.Antimane.A is definitely one of the most treacherous of them all. This worm can travel through various online sources, including spam sent through emails or unauthorized IM messaging. Infections like Worm.Antimane.A are extremely hard to detect, but must be removed without any hesitation, because of its malicious capabilities of letting in more malware and using your personal accounts for spreading purposes.
Worm.Antimane.A, which started attacking PCs back in 2010, is one of the most latent tools anyone could ever be unfortunate enough to deal with, because it not only works as a rootkit, which allows the infection stay hidden from removal, but is also composed of various cloaked files. This means that Worm.Antimane.A creators have enough knowledge to modify original files, or generate new ones, using the names of authentic programs’ components. Three of such files are services.exe, TurnUp.exe and SmitfraudFix.exe. Serivces.exe is an integral Windows component, which controls the starting and finishing operations of most system’s processes. However, Worm.Antimane.A’s executable is capable of many more things, as it can add/delete processes, steal login details, hijack operations, modify Windows Security Center settings, and can connect to remote servers. With unauthorized connection to the web, Worm.Antimane.A’s creators are enabled to record your online activity and use your personal email accounts to send spam email. This means that your name could be used to spread Worm.Antimane.A further!
Another camouflaged Worm.Antimane.A file is SmitfraudFix.exe, which originally is a security tool, enabled to remove fake antispyware applications. This S!Ri product works against malicious software, but Worm.Antimane.A uses its name to fool Windows users with its legitimacy and right to run in the system. Infective SmitraudFix.exe can release various, bogus system’s security notifications, which means that Worm.Antimane.A could be followed by other malignant tools. This rootkit executable is the one responsible for keeping the contamination hidden from any removal. And this task is ever more aggravated by TuneUp.exe, which removes access to Registry Editor and controls administrative privileges to disable your Windows control.
Worm.Antimane.A is not an application that should be running in your Windows system, alongside other core programs, and if you do not want your personal data stolen and used for malicious purposes, delete Worm.Antimane.A now! Bad news is, it is nearly impossible to detect and remove this infection manually; luckily, automatic removal tools can perform this task in only a couple of minutes. Note that this software must be kept updated at all times to ensure full-time Windows protection!
