In this article we will talk about Dycler.gen, that infested the PC, and you unwillingly helped it to do this. This tool can cause issues in the system, and we earnestly recommend you to get rid of it immediately after reading this article. In this part of an article we will tell you how Trojans infect your system and how to learn which tool is safe and which isn't. Here's the short description of Trojans, of their abilities, pros and weaknesses. Trojan viruses are the separate kind of malware that is known for stealthiness and usability, but is unable to solely infect victim's computer. Viruses are not the same thing as Trojans, since viruses are almost totally independent, and Trojans need to be maintained and directed. Trojans depend on people completely, at all stages of their "life". The developers of the Trojan are giving it the form of a helpful tool, and put the Trojan to a popular web-resource from which it will be accessible to a large numbers of customers. The place of Trojan's second host is vacant, and if you like these little programs - just download as much useless programs as you can, and soon you'll get one. You should know that Trojans are infrequently being spread separately, but more frequent you can see them in packages AKA “bundles” containing several viruses, adware, malware or Trojans.


Despite some restrictions in the ways of distribution, Trojans are extremely effective after they penetrate the system. Trojan viruses are the biggest kind of harmful software, and may induce a lot of problems with the computer, engage your device in a criminal scam or steal your passwords. Here's a short list of average methods to use Trojan viruses:

  • The less popular method of Trojans use is to make so-called botnets. By these we mean thousands of PC's, Macs or even "smart" vacuum cleaners united by swindlers in a single net that they use for criminal activity. The list of actions varies from DDoS attacks on any sites to large malspam campaigns, and it often calls restrictions from Google for your IP address or the whole subnet.
  • Trojan viruses, due to their invisibility, are nearly ideal means for espionage. Trojan virus can exist in contaminated computer for a long time, gathering data about its operator, passwords, accounts, attended sites and in general the text entered via keyboard.


All these manners of Trojan usage might be carried out apart of other ones or altogether. Except described in the previous paragraphs goals that at first-hand give profit to swindlers, Trojans also have extra negatives: they exploit your machine's recourses, block up its memory with useless applications and prevent the machine from running for its intended purpose. Understanding this, you will abide our advice and get rid of all Trojans for good.
