How to remove Mutuodo trojan

Trojans is a type of computer viruses that penetrates computer in the "stealth mode". Now we'll talk about Mutuodo, that infected the system, and you unwillingly assisted it to do this. Mutuodo is not useful and has no helpful functions, so it has to be removed as fast as possible. Here we'll explain you how Mutuodo infected your system and how to distinguish useful program from a virus. Here's the brief description of Trojan viruses, of their capabilities, pros and cons. Trojans are the specific kind of malware that is known for secrecy and usability, but is unable to independently infest victim's computer. Viruses are not equal to Trojans, because viruses can act independently, and Trojans have to be supported and directed. Trojans rely on people entirely, at all stages of their "life". The developers of the Trojan have to give it the guise of a decent software, and upload the Trojan to a popular resource from which it will be accessible to a huge numbers of customers. The place of little malware's second host is vacant, and if you love these cute creatures - just install as many suspicious tools as you can, and soon you'll get one. Another crucial Trojan attribute is that most of the times they are being distributed through bundled installation - they infest the laptop in one bundle with 4-5 other programs.


When Trojan after all finds a host it begins to pursue its goals, which usually means bad things for you and your system. Trojan viruses are the most numerous type of viruses, and may steal your passwords, induce serious damage to your device or include your computer in a botnet. Here's a complete enumeration of possible ways for using Trojans:


  • The less effective way of using Trojans is to create botnets. By "botnet" we consider thousands of PC's, Macs or even "smart" fridges united by fraudsters in a single network that they use for criminal purposes. With help of these botnets they attack large web-pages, send lots of spam and apply their calculating powers for other purposes, like mining of crypto-currency.
  • Trojans, due to their invisibility, are the incredible tools for spying on common customers. Trojan can exist in contaminated PC for years, getting info about its operator, passwords, accounts, visited sites and, maybe, even the text entered from keyboard.


Any of these ways of using Trojans can be carried out singly or simultaneously. Except described in the previous paragraphs major goals that directly benefit net-criminals, Trojans have multiple extra negatives: they exploit the resources of your machine, block up its hard drive with unwanted applications and prevent the computer from running for its original function. Knowing this, you'll completely endorse our verdict and delete all Trojans once and for all.
