The vicious Win32/Sirefef.DK, or Trojan:Win32/Sirefef.P, is not an easily detectable infection which you could delete using out-of-date security applications. This is because the sinister cyber criminals’ creation is composed of multiple malignant components and has been created to assist other Sirefef family infections and help with their latent propagation into your own Windows systems or other computers.
