Trojan.Ticboin.B is one of the newest Trojans that infect the computer without the user's knowledge. It has been detected in various countries including Thailand, Taiwan and Turkey. Upon the infection Trojan.Ticboin.B adds a Registry auto start entry and as a result the program loads on system boot up. However, despite the fact that Trojan.Ticboin.B performs significant system changes, it all happens behind the user's back and he remains oblivious to what is going on in his system.
Nevertheless, if the user is well acquainted with Task Manager and knows what processes are supposed to run there, he should look for msvcsip4.exe or 97AC.exe among the system processes. These two process files are associated with Trojan.Ticboin.B and their presence in the running processes list proves the fact that the user is infected with Trojan.Ticboin.B.
The good thing about Trojan.Ticboin.B is that it cannot spread on its own accord, so if the user stays away from Trojan distribution websites (those are usually websites of suspicious nature), does not open spam email, or click on unknown outgoing links he should be spared the stress that Trojan.Ticboin.B brings.
Since Trojan.Ticboin.B is usually controlled by a remote attacker, it can do whatever the hacker wants it to do. Once the infection is successful, the Trojan connects to 22.214.171.124 via port 8999 in order to report that another computer has been infected. Then Trojan.Ticboin.B receives configuration data from this server and instructions on what to do further. It can also collect various information from the infected computer and then send it over to the previously mentioned server.
By no means should Trojan.Ticboin.B be allowed to remain in the system. However, manual removal is slightly tricky, because it requires using Registry Editor, and not every single user is experienced enough to do so. Thus, an average computer user should remove Trojan.Ticboin.B with an antimalware program. Automatic removal is the best option for anyone who wants to deal with this infection fast.
