Even if you do not see Trojan.Acbot.A running inside your computer, it does not mean that the appalling infection does not exist inside your operating Windows system. The cunning program has been circulating around the web since the beginning of 2012, and since then has been recorded with such names as Trojan:Win32/Acbot.A, Trojan-Ransom.Win32.Birele, Win32/Slenfbot.AK and Mal/Rorpian-D. The obnoxious application is closely linked to popular social networking websites, where bogus alerts have been spread to propagate the Trojan into multiple computers all around the world. Schemers, who are behind the scam, can place multiple infected links within such sites as Facebook and Twitter where some users are bound to follow them. If you do this, you will immediately be redirected to hotfile.com, and malignant infection’s components will be infiltrated into your PC’s system. Additionally, the infectious application can inject codes into Firefox, Chrome and IE browsers, and manipulate text placed within aforementioned Facebook, Twitter, and multiple other websites (e.g. MySpace, Bebo). With this power, cyber criminals can even replace your posts with infected links, just to ensure further Trojan’s distribution. It has been reported that the devious program does not affect systems with automatic malware detection and removal systems, so if your PC has no safeguarding software, we highly recommend scanning your system right away, as you might have to remove Trojan.Acbot.A running inside your computer.
The cunning application runs on multiple infectious files, including those with randomly generated names (000d485.exe, 8FEF.exe and eeggew.exe), and those that have already been noticed in other dangerous infections. 23.exe is a vicious executable which can delete processes, add illicit products to the registry, and modify its components to allow malicious operations to run without much difficulties. B.exe is another latent file of the kind and this .exe can implement HTTP protocols to create unauthorized, unnoticeable connections to the web. It can also release multiple pop-up notifications, record keystrokes, steal login details, connect to personal email or chat room accounts and convey mass spam email attacks to spread Trojan.Acbot.A. If you think you will be able to remove all of these devious components you might face some obstacles, as another component svmhost.exe will employ a rootkit to camouflage the infection and will make it impossible to detect and delete all harmful files and processes.
Dangerous Trojan’s executables have polymorphic features which will highly aggravate manual infection’s removal, which is why we strongly suggest using automatic removal tools to track and delete Trojan.Acbot.A or any other infections which might have been downloaded alongside this cunning application. What is more, even if you are not sure that the malicious program is running on your computer, automatic removal security software will scan your computer within a couple of minutes! You can also identify cyber criminals’ intrusion within your system once your computer starts running slower, some of your administrative privileges seem to be removed, or you are missing files from desktop and Start Menu locations. Do not think your folders are deleted, and waste no time restoring them, as your priority right now is Trojan.Acbot.A removal.
