Trojan.PWS

Trojan.PWS is a faction of malicious computer infections which are recognized for their ability to steal passwords. Schemers have created the devious threat in order to corrupt your personal computer, online accounts (IM, chat, email) and to breach the security of your online banking. As you can imagine, all of this could be extremely dangerous to your virtual and financial security, which is why it is absolutely necessary that you implement authentic security software which could detect and remove Trojan.PWS infections in time. Of course, the threat could already be running on your computer, which is bad news. The only way to ensure that you do not become the victim of schemers is spyware removal, and this article answers all questions regarding this operation.

Unless you scan the PC with a reliable spyware scanner once in a while, it is unlikely that you will discover the threat on your operating system in time. Such infections as Trojan.PWS.OnlineGames, Trojan.Sinowal, Trojan.PWS.Tupai, Trojan.PWS.LdPinch, or Trojan.PWS.Agent.RWD (all belong to the same family) do not have interfaces. The malignant components of these malicious infections are dropped onto the computer secretly, so that you would not notice anything suspicious. As research shows, malware can be distributed using social engineering scams, spam email attachments, misleading adverts, bundled downloads, fake system updates, and similar security vulnerabilities. These files can be dropped onto various parts of your computer, including %WinDir%, %ProgramFiles%, or %AppData%.

The malicious Trojans can employ files with randomly generated names (e.g. 1225739779.exe and outpuk25[1].exe), or it can use components which may appear as authentic Windows elements. For example, would you rush to delete Trojan.PWS file menu.dll? If you are less experienced with the operating system you may think that by getting this dynamic link library file removed you could be corrupting, for example, the Start Menu. In reality, just like ibm00002.dll and msscntr32.exe, this file can record keystrokes, mouse clicks and screen content to help cyber criminals discover your passwords and user IDs. Note that the files can also reconfigure Windows settings, delete/add processes and utilize your email accounts for mass spam email attacks.

Do you know how to remove Trojan.PWS from the operating Windows system? The clandestine infection uses polymorphic components to hide from detection and removal. In order to ensure that all malignant files are deleted you should employ a reliable spyware remover. An authentic Windows security tool (e.g. SpyHunter) will detect and delete all of the malignant components linked to the infection.
