Since computer threat networks are getting more intricate right as we speak, it is of no surprise that there are various types of computer infections, and some of them cannot fall into an exact category. Take PWSteal.Bzub.gen, for example. In some case this malicious code is detected as a Trojan, although this password stealer is generally associated with installing malevolent applications on the target computer. Since PWSteal.Bzub.gen does not have an interface it is not that easy to determine whether you are infected with this malware or not. Even so, if you feel that your computer behavior is odd, you should perform a full system scan in order to check whether you are infected with the likes of PWSteal.Bzub.gen or not.
PWSteal.Bzub.gen is well known for installing undesirable browser helper objects (BHO) onto your Internet browser. The malicious application can also drop a DLL file that loads together with the Internet browser as a BHO. The said DLL file usually monitors the Internet browser habits of the user and even records logon information on every single website the user accesses by the means of keylogging. Thus, if you have an antivirus program it might also detect the dropped malicious component as PWS:Win32/Bzub.gen!dll.
Due to the fact, that PWSteal.Bzub.gen and its components can monitor your Internet browsing habits and record the data you input via your keyboard, your personal and financial information is at risk of being leaked to a third party. It is especially disturbing because there are no exact symptoms of the infection, but, for example, if you find such processes as pdfcrackerpro.exe in Task Manager, you can be sure that PWSteal.Bzub.gen is in your computer. It also implies that the infection is a tricky one, because with pdfcrackerpro.exe PWSteal.Bzub.gen assumes polymorphic features and can change its structure. Also, it can be the reason behind random pop-ups, fake error and security messages.
In order to protect your system and your sensitive data you have to remove PWSteal.Bzub.gen from your computer as soon as possible. Even though it is possible to terminate the infection on your own, it would be for the best to make use of a legitimate antimalware application that would secure your system by deleting PWSteal.Bzub.gen along with its components. You should also check whether your system has any other infections, because things like PWSteal.Bzub.gen usually come in throngs.
