Trojanized Coin Miners
Actually coin miners are legit programs that people all over the world use to mine digital currency or as it is also called cryptocurrency. They use their own computing powers to do so but of course there are people who look for somewhere else to use that computing power meaning secretly mining coins using someone else’s computer.
Once the trojanized coin miner program gets on your computer it will start to exploit all its resources to mine for someone else’s digital coins. Such trojans working over prolonged periods of time can significantly lower the productivity of your machine, sometimes making it almost unusable.
Although these programs are considered legitimate in some cases, in other ones they can put at risk your cyber security and safety. Cybercriminals exploit adware to simply generate revenue from different user interactions with ads.
Malicious adware can also track and record your personal information and internet browser history. These types of information can then be sold to unknown third parties without your consent, of course. In no less dangerous cases malicious adware can lead users to some malicious webpage as well.
The same as with adware spyware also gets installed on your computer without your knowledge and consent. But even though specialists classify even adware as a spyware the other programs that also fall into its classification can bring even more damage.
An example of the targeted information will be passwords, banking information, credit card numbers, email addresses, banking records, personal identification numbers. The information gathered then gets sold to some third parties or used in an attempt of identity theft.
This particularly stealthy threat has the ability to replicate itself without the user’s knowledge of it. Only the great amounts of resources consumed, slowed or halted tasks can hint at the presence of the malware. When a worm infected one machine it looked for other devices on the targeted network to infect.
The most famous example of worm can be WannaCry ransomware which exploited a vulnerability in the Server Message Block (SMBv1) resource sharing protocol in Windows. The other no less famous worm will be Stuxnet. It is believed to be created by U.S and Israeli intelligence agencies to halt Iranian nuclear weapons production.
These kinds of malicious programs pretend to be some legitimate program while in reality once an unsuspecting user installs it it begins conducting malicious activities. Trojan malware family will include examples like ransomware trojans, infostealer trojans, fake antivirus trojans, banking trojans and backdoor trojans.
Usually trojans spy on you or they will do other specifically assigned tasks like installing other malware onto your device or steal valuable data. To get users to install them, trojans pretend to be legitimate files with the aim to trick you somehow to click, open or install them. Trojans come in the form of programs, pieces of code or files.
The malware tends to flexibly spread throughout computers and networks. Typically they attach themselves to some executable file which means that every time this infected file is running the virus is also running. From its primary nest virus will spread to drives, file-sharing programs, networks and infected email attachments.
Back in the days viruses used to spread via floppy disks but later they were replaced by Universal Serial Bus (USB) devices and hard disks. Nowadays the tendency is moving towards the internet being the main medium of spreading virus infection.
Actually rootkits once were used for quite legitimate purposes allowing network or computer administrators to easily get privileged access to machines. Nowadays threat actors exploit tools to get deep level unauthorized access to targeted computers or networks.
The malware doesn’t explicitly show its presence while conducting malicious actions like change system configuration on the targeted host machine, remotely execute files, access log files and spy on the user of the infected computer. The term rootkit was coined from two words “root” referring to Linux or Unix systems’ admin account and “kit” referring to software components that constitute the tool.
Bots can be good and bad. Even Google has its own bot called Googlebot. This automated type of software does repetitive assigned tasks which depends whether this bot is malicious or not. “Good” bots help people when they shop online, they also facilitate transactions, conduct online chats, index web pages.
On the other hand, “bad” bots conduct various malicious tasks like spamming, clicking, Ddosing, and trying to steal sensitive information with malicious chatterbots. Some estimates indicate that over 50% of web traffic is made up of bots.
You can guess the functionality of this one by the word “key” in its name. Basically this malware record everything that you type in on your device which more clearly means tracking your texts and keystrokes and sending it back to the attacker.
Apart from this some keyloggers can even record information from your clipboard that you paste or cut from other documents, track what documents, folders or applications you open, take screenshots, work as a form grabber. Keyloggers are one of the most common malware that is usually delivered by Trojans, viruses and worms.
An interesting example of a malware that gets into action once certain conditions are met on a targeted device. For example it can be opening certain file or vice versa not opening it. After such logic bomb gets triggered the malware begans thr devastation of system by clearing hard drive, deleting files or corrupting data.
Logic bombs can be in a form of piece of code inside worms or viruses or it can be solely malware with only particular task of doing some set action in preterminated time.
You never know when a particular threat will appear before you so it’s better to be ready at every time. Especially with today’s malware, it can literally strike you every possible minute. Get yourself ready with Loaris Trojan Remover to counteract threats mentioned above and also deal with the attacks consequences.
