Trojan.Fbook is an extremely malicious Trojan that uses a very successful distribution method. While we have seen plenty of malicious Trojans spreading via Facebook.com, this one immediately involves more people, which means that it has better chances to attack more operating system. If you are not cautious, this infection could enter your operating system without your knowledge and use your own account to infect other systems. If you do not want to become a tool in the hands of cyber criminals, you must remove Trojan.Fbook from your operating system right away. Unfortunately, most computer users realize that they need to delete this threat only after it performs in a malicious manner.
The clandestine Trojan.Fbook uses a special script to record your Facebook user ID and fb_dtsg. Do you know what fb_dtsg is? This is the so-called token, or request identifier, and it is unique for every request. This exploit can be used to select contacts in your Facebook Friends’ list, and these contacts are tagged to the corrupted link posted on your Timeline. A malicious script then finds an image related to pornographic content, and a fictitious post is created. If you do not use automated malware removal software that could delete Trojan.Fbook from your PC in time, this post will appear to have been created by you. Needless to say, it is likely that your friends – especially the friends tagged in the post – will click the link. If you are the one tagged in such a post, you should not click it; otherwise, you will have to remove Trojan.Fbook-related threats from your own PC.
When you click the link presented by Trojan.Fbook, you will be routed to a corrupted website supposedly associated with the picture or video attached to the post. This is when you will be asked to install browser extensions, media players, or other kinds of software that supposedly will help you view the content. Needless to say, you must not download anything because this is how malware will enter your PC. Most users find that Trojan.Fbook offers to install a fictitious Adobe Flash Player update. If you install this update, a malicious executable, servant.exe, is dropped to %appdata% and automatically executed. If you do not delete this file – which you probably will not if you do not know it exists and deserves removal – it will modify your web browsers. This is meant to ensure regular malware updates and block you from visiting sites that might help you remove Trojan.Fbook and the associated computer infections. This is the message you will receive if you try to visit pcthreat.com or other sites alike.
Do you think you can delete Trojan.Fbook from your Windows operating system manually? This can be extremely difficult, which is why we do not recommend this removal option. Instead, you should make use of an authentic malware detection and removal tool. We recommend installing SpyHunter because it will certainly find and remove Trojan.Fbook from your PC. The problem is that you might have trouble installing this security tool from this website, which is why we advise downloading the installer using a different computer. After this, you should transfer the installer onto your own infected PC and run it to install the program that will find and remove all existing computer threats.
