Trojan.Cidox is one of the most cunning Windows infections out there, because the malignant application not only can enter a Windows system without any of your notification, but can also download malware, work as a keylogger and paralyze your system to aggravate Trojan’s removal. Additionally, the infection has been implemented to reconfigure NTFS’ (New Technology File System) Initial Program Loader, which could allow cyber schemers to control malignant processes, initiated during system’s boot up. The Trojan can also inject its codes into the Master Boot Record (MBR), and hijack Windows’ svchost.exe, iexplore.exe, firefox.exe, chrome.exe or opera.exe files, to allow illicit Internet browsing redirections. And with such paralyzing Internet connection restrictions, it might be difficult to remove Trojan.Cidox from your operating Windows system.
Malware dropping Trojan’s components can be distributed via many security cracks and backdoors, and once in, can apply various modifications to utilize your system for malignant processes. The malicious Trojan has been recorded to be composed of various files, which might come with cloaked or randomly generated names. If you are not able to access Task Manager or Registry Editor, you can be sure that explorer.exe has slithered in. Note that this malignant executable can be propagated in various alias names, such as winlogon.exe. Logonbgpack.exe (or calc.exe) may also slither inside your Windows alongside Trojan.Cidox infection. The dangerous executable can delete and hijack processes, record keystrokes, screen content, mouse clicks, steal other information from autoexec.bat file, or collect contact information from system’s address books. Additionally, the high-risk executable can create links to remote servers, use your personal accounts to spread the infection via chat rooms, or infect USB drives to ensure that removable devices inside your system could propagate dangerous Trojan’s components further.
Trojan.Cidox is an infection, which can affect Windows systems from Windows NT to Windows Vista versions, and its creators may employ your own accounts to spread the malicious application. You should delete the latent Trojan right away, and trustable, automatic removal tools will do the job best. Manual Trojan.Cidox removal is a highly complicated operation, and those Windows users, who do not have practical removal skills, should not even consider proceeding manually.
