One of the most popular types of computer is a Trojan horse. Therefore it should not be hard to understand why Trojan.Klovbot is an infection commonly found in many computers worldwide. It was first discovered in October 2011 and ever since it has affected various Windows systems, including Windows 98, Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 and so on. The main reason why Trojan.Klovbot enters your computer is information - it wants to steal it. So it goes without saying that you must erase Trojan.Klovbot from your computer if you don't your personal information leaked to third parties.
Trojan.Klovbot commonly arrives at the target computer via email or drive-by download. When it comes with spam email, it usually is hiding in the attachment or behind the link that is embedded in the text. Once the curious user clicks the link in the spam message, he gets infected with Trojan.Klovbot. Now, although this Trojan does not have a high level of distribution, once it is in, it modifies the hosts file which means it interferes with hostnames mapping to IP addresses. So when you are infected with Trojan.Klovbot, you might get forcefully redirected to websites of malicious content which would lead to even more malware entering your computer.
The file that is related to Trojan.Klovbot is called csrcs.exe and when you are infected you can see this process file run in the Windows Task Manager. This file allows the Trojan to function as both malware downloader and a worm, in a sense that it lowers down the levels of system security for other malicious programs to enter the system, and at the same time it slows down your computer, making it impossible to work with it any further.
Therefore, in order to keep your information safe and your system secure, you need to remove Trojan.Klovbot immediately. Although some users prefer terminating Trojans on their own, if you are not a computer expert it is better to make use of a reliable computer security tool. The tool will remove Trojan.Klovbot and will scan your system for any other infections automatically. Do what is best for you and your computer.
