ANTIGEN is a Trojan infection that can bypass your computer security tools and modify the settings of the system to perform malicious actions which are related to your privacy. The infection is known to infect various Windows operating systems, including Windows 2000, Windows 98, Windows XP and others.
ANTIGEN has no interface, so you will not know whether the system is infected with this particular threat unless you scan the PC with a powerful spyware removal tool. In order to identify what infections are damaging the system, download a free scanner whose download button you will find below.
The most important thing which you should know about the Trojan is that it collects private information such as URL passwords, dialup passwords, and others. The information is being collected into one file which is sent to remote attackers so that they can take the infected machine over and introduce new changes or infect the system with new malware. The attackers receive the information in a form of an email, to which the file containing the stolen data is attached.
Moreover, the ANTIGEN Trojan may leave some files in a temporary folder. Consequently, the data left in the folder can mimic the running of a program to camouflage the processing of the Trojan. You may also notice that the Internet speed is decreased, and that the overall performance of the computer is sluggish.
In order to avoid further damage, it is crucial to remove ANTIGEN as soon as possible.
