Sometimes the same Trojan has quite a few versions designed to target particular system vulnerability, and Trojan.Canesdusk is one of such threats. Generally, Trojan.Canesdusk is a Trojan dropper which means that once it gets installed into the target computer, it connects to the Internet without the user’s knowledge or approval and then downloads and executes other unwanted software. Trojan droppers are directly related to backdoors that allow unauthorized system access. Thus, with Trojan.Canesdusk you are risking the ultimate system exposure to a third party.
When Trojan.Canesdusk is fully installed onto your computer it will always load together with the operating system, because it adds a value to the registry that makes the system run the malicious file during the boot. Thus the Trojan successfully completes its task of infiltrating into your system and working behind your back. So while you think everything is ok, Trojan.Canesdusk drops a number of malicious applications into your system.
It is commonly known that Trojan.Canesdusk delivers the following threats into the target computer: Backdoor.Sdbot, TrojanSpy.Cospet.A and VirTool:MSIL/Injector.C. Thus, you can see that with the Trojan dropper in your system you will soon be infected with other malware and little by little your computer will slow down to the point you will no longer be able to work with it. Some of the programs might become irresponsive, and you might have problem connecting to the Internet, as the malware delivered by Trojan.Canesdusk will abuse your broadband.
Eventually you might even get infected by a rogue antispyware infection and get robbed to the very last cent. Trojan.Canesdusk is obviously the main seed of this accumulative threat, so you need to take care of it in the first stages of the infection. It would be for the best to acquire a legitimate antimalware program that would detect and remove Trojan.Canesdusk automatically, thus saving you the trouble of dealing with the Trojan on your own. Do take your system security seriously and make sure that you don’t get infected with similar things again.
