Active since late 2011, Worm.Rochap.A, also known by the names Trojan.Win32.Buzus!IK and Worm:Win32/Rochap.A, is a dangerous worm, which can spread to Windows systems via many different infiltration ways. Some system users might catch the malignant application through encrypted downloads, or fake video codecs, and others could be sensing the aftermath of lethal Trojans, already active inside computers. Nonetheless, cyber criminals are inventive enough to detect and use every security crack there is, so all Windows users should be careful with browsing activities, and what sources are used to acquire Windows programs. Unfortunately, once inside a system, it will not be easy to remove Worm.Rochap.A from the computer, as this infection can hide itself from detection and removal.
Despite the fact that Worm.Rochap.A does not have an interface, you can detect its activity by noticing the changes in your OS. As this infection is likely to take over a great amount of your system’s resources, your computer is bound to slow down, you might also find some Internet connectivity problems, or even removed privileges to some important Windows tools. Even though, Worm.Rochap.A is made from multiple components, infection’s most latent one is ClamTary.exe, which originally belongs to the ClamWin Antivirus application. The worm uses the name of an authentic file, so that you would get confused by its legitimacy, and its malicious processes would be undisturbed. ClamTray.exe can hijack, add and remove processes inside the Registry, add them to the Windows startup, create Internet connection to remote servers, and even initiate browser helper object activity to record personal information. This infectious component is polymorphic, which means that it can change its own structure, making its detection and removal extremely complicated.
Even though Worm.Rochap.A has many infiltration ways, Windows Live messaging is amongst one of the most popular invasion channels. Spreading via this source means the infection can use your chat accounts to spread the malicious application even further than your computer. And connection to the web allows schemers behind the infection to let in other treacherous programs, like TrojanDownloader:Win32/Rochap.R, process latently inside your computer. So, if you do not want your Windows system to be harmed even more, and you do not want your name or accounts to be used by unlawful third parties, remove Worm.Rochap.A right away!
Taking security precautions is highly important to have your Windows system unharmed; therefore, keep your Windows Security tools updated, beware of social engineering attacks, keep away from illegal download sites, be cautious with unfamiliar setups, and, most importantly, use strong, up-to-date security software, which could delete Worm.Rochap.A, as well as other malicious applications, which could attack in the future!
