How to remove RubyMiner

RubyMiner is another Trojan virus that installs on the computer to main bitcoins. RubyMiner is not helpful and has no advantages, so it should be deleted as fast as possible. The easiest manner to neutralize the Trojan infection is to know how to distinguish malware. In the very beginning, we have to tell you the crucial things about Trojans. The name “Trojan virus” is very accurate: software of this type stealthy infests users' computers, trying to look like decent utilities, but they can't spread themselves. In fact, Trojans can't be considered viruses, since viruses know how to multiply and independently distribute themselves. Trojans depend on people fully, at all stages of their "life". The first host of newborn Trojan is its developer that gives it a form of a useful tool and uploads it on comfy file-sharing service. After that, the program waits until a trusting customer will download it and offer his services as a victim. Another significant thing about Trojans is that most of the times they're being distributed through bundled installation - they enter the machine in one package with 3-4 other viruses.

In spite of several restrictions in the ways of spreading, Trojans are very efficient after they get through system's defense. Trojan viruses are the biggest sort of viruses, and might scrounge your passwords, use your system in a botnet or induce serious damage to the device. Here's a brief enumeration of possible ways to use Trojan viruses:

  • Trojan viruses, because of their invisibility, are the incredible utilities for spying on common people. Trojan can exist in infested PC for years, getting information about its operator, attended websites, passwords, accounts and, maybe, even any text entered via keyboard.
  • The less effective method of using Trojans is to make botnets. Botnet is a web of hundreds or even thousands of systems, or some other "intelligent" devices, via which swindlers are carrying out their smelly schemes. With the assistance of these webs they attack government websites, provide tons of spam and use their computing powers for other tasks, like crypto-currency farming.

All these manners of applying Trojan viruses might be carried out singly or at the same time. In addition to the described in the previous paragraphs major goals, which at first-hand benefit swindlers, Trojans have multiple side effects: they operate the CPU the resources of your device, block the system with suspicious tools and prevent the device from being used for its initial mission. Realizing this, you will listen to our advice and remove all Trojans for good.
