PWSteal.Lageliz.A Trojan was released nearly a year ago (July, 2011), and Windows users still get attacked by this treacherous infection and all of its dynamic link library files. If your access to Registry Editor and Task Manager is not blocked, you should check for processes with randomly generated or misleading names, like these ones bellow:
These Trojan’s components capacitate the malicious infection to run effortlessly in your operating Windows system, but there are many more executables, which can be linked to PWSteal.Lageliz.A infection. One of them is setup.exe, and if this malignant file is running in your system, it could be compromised gravely, and your personal information could become available to cyber criminals’ resorts. If active, this executable can hijack, delete processes, record keyboard inputs, create TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) ports, employ personal IM chat and email accounts to spread infectious files, or even modify your browser’s settings. Additionally, this file is polymorphic and could easily hide from any detection and removal! This malware downloader can also tamper with your Windows Security Center, making it unresponsive to PWSteal.Lageliz.A infection, because of disabled attributes to notify you of the danger.

PWSteal.Lageliz.A itself is considered to be a password stealing Trojan, because of its keylogging abilities. A keylogger could easily copy your key strokes made in certain websites; therefore it could be extremely dangerous to your sensitive banking information. If this were to be applied on your system as well, you must contact your bank and make sure that your accounts are taken care of appropriately. Additionally, it is recommended to change passwords of such essential online accounts as Internet banking or personal email. This way you will prevent spam attacks from your address, and your finances will be protected from potential unlawful activities.
It should be clear that you must not leave PWSteal.Lageliz.A Trojan in your system for any longer, and if you are still not sure whether this infection is harming your program, look out for such give away symptoms, as removed administrative privileges, Internet connection issues, or slow performance speeds. If you have noticed any of these dysfunctions, rush to install automatic removal tools, which will not take any time to detect and delete PWSteal.Lageliz.A, if it is truly inside your Windows OS. Note that if you have not removed malware before, you should not try out your scarce knowledge on this dangerous Trojan, as you could do more damage to the system’s integral health!
