Trojan.Gakivod.A is a particularly disturbing Trojan horse infection with a special symptom that separates this application from the other Trojans. Trojan.Gakivod.A can be called a ransom malware, because it manifests itself as a Microsoft Windows message, blocking the user from accessing his account, trying to lure a particular sum of money from him. Since it pretends to be a legitimate part of the operation system, it happens so that a lot of users get hooked and actually pay for the Windows access. However, instead of spending their money on something like that, one should remove Trojan.Gakivod.A at once.

This Trojan can also modify which files to drop into the system upon the installation based on which version of Windows is installed on the computer. Thus, Trojan.Gakivod.A is a flexible infection that can affect negatively a great rage of systems. Once installed and running Trojan.Gakivod.A uses a set of JPEG images that are stored in its resources to display a warning message upon the system startup. The warning message is entirely in German and it claims that the user has to pay Microsoft 100 Euros in order to unlock Windows. If the user pays, the message promises to provide an activation key which will allow the user to access Windows again.

Trojan.Gakivod.A basically displays a message that urges the user to renew the Windows license. The code that can bypass this message is:


Displaying frustrating messages is not the only thing that Trojan.Gakivod.A does. It can also install a keyboard hook that uses keystroke logging to monitor the user’s activity. And it can forcefully redirect the Internet browser to open website. From this we can see that Trojan.Gakivod.A interferes with the system security too much to ignore it any longer. The user whose system is infected with this Trojan is recommended to download a reliable security program and remove Trojan.Gakivod.A from the system.
