Trojan.Aenjaris is an incredibly malicious infection, and its strength lies within its versatility. The actors behind this threat can use to perform in any way you can think of. It could be used to download other malicious infections. It could be used to steal sensitive information. It could wreak havoc and stop your operating system from functioning in an orderly manner. Without a doubt, this infection was created to make a mess, and, hopefully, there is still time for you to ensure that this devious threat cannot slither in. If you have already discovered this malware, the first thing you need to do, of course, is to remove Trojan.Aenjaris. Unfortunately, this infection is not just another potentially unwanted program, undesirable extension, or annoying hijacker. If this malicious threat slithers in, it is likely to hook deep into your operating system, and so deleting it manually can be extremely complicated. Read this report, and you will find more information about your options when it comes to eliminating this Trojan.
Although a malware scanner might have introduced you to a threat named “Trojan.Aenjaris,” this name is generic, which means that a group of different files and components could fall under the same name. This is because different files used by different parties could act in a way that is considered to be compatible with the activity of Aenjaris as a whole. Also, depending on the scanner you use, this threat could have a different name altogether. Due to the fact that different attackers could be involved, and different attack methods and malicious activity could be linked to this one name, it is very hard to give any specific details. For example, if we discuss the execution of the Trojan’s payload, we cannot focus on just one specific method. The infection’s payload could be downloaded using exploit kits that prey on system vulnerabilities. The Trojan could also be spread using malicious software bundles. We also have to consider the possibility that Windows users could download the threat themselves if it is concealed as something else (a.k.a. a Trojan horse). Needless to say, if you do not want to worry about the removal of this kind of malware, you need to ensure all-rounded security, and you need to be careful about what you download or how you interact with the content available online.
Most Trojans are used as security backdoors or as data collectors. In the first case, the infection is planted for the purpose of silently downloading other malicious files, which could include keyloggers, ransomware, rogues, and others kinds of malware. Keyloggers, for example, can silently record keystrokes and capture mouse clicks or screenshots to help remote attackers record sensitive information. Depending on what kind of information is recorded, the victim could experience virtual identity theft, illicit transactions from their bank accounts, etc. To facilitate the malware, Trojan.Aenjaris could delete and create files, terminate processes, disrupt the activity of security software, kill Windows utilities (e.g., Task Manager or Registry Editor), or do other undesirable things. Our research team has been observing a new trend where malicious infections are used to mine Bitcoins and other crypto-currency as well. If Aenjaris drops a miner, the system’s CPU recourses can be depleted dramatically, and the computer could crash. Overall, the infection can cause nothing but harm.
Detecting Trojan.Aenjaris can be very difficult, and, most likely, Windows users will discover this threat during a routine system scan. Hopefully, scans are performed frequently; otherwise, the infection could do some serious damage. If you have discovered this threat, you want to remove it as soon as possible. Doing so manually so can be extremely difficult, which is why we advise installing anti-malware software. If such software already exists on your PC, you might need to upgrade it, and if that is not an option, you might want to choose a better, more efficient alternative. Keeping your system protected is your main line of defense, and if it is breached, malware can run amok. The instructions created by our research team show the few possible locations where the files of the malicious Trojan could be found. If this is how you choose to delete Trojan.Aenjaris, make sure you use a malware scanner afterward to check if you have been able to remove the infection completely.
N.B. After you remove the Trojan – and other threats that might have been downloaded by it – change your passwords and track your accounts carefully for any suspicious activity.
