Script/Cloxer.A!cl trojan

 

In this article we'll talk about Script/Cloxer.A!cl, that infected the PC, and you unwittingly assisted it to do so. Script/Cloxer.A!cl is not useful and has no advantages, so it has to be removed as soon as possible. Now we will explain you how Script/Cloxer.A!cl infected the computer and how to distinguish helpful software from Trojan. In the very beginning, we need to explain you the crucial things about Trojans. The name "Trojan" is very accurate: viruses of this type stealthy infest victims' machines, trying to look like helpful programs, but they can't distribute themselves. Actually, Trojans aren't really the viruses, since viruses know how to multiply and independently infect systems. Trojans are like parasites: they are completely impotent and weak, but with help of the host they might create many problems. The first host of young Trojan is its developer who gives it a guise of a helpful tool and uploads it on comfy file-sharing website. The place of little malware's next host is free, and if you love these tiny creatures - just install as many suspicious programs as possible, and soon you'll get one. We have to inform you that Trojans are rarely distributed separately, but more frequent you can see them in packages also known as “bundles” containing few viruses, Trojans, malware or adware.

When Trojan eventually penetrates the system it begins to achieve its aims, which usually means nothing good for you and your PC. Trojans are the biggest type of viruses, and may steal your passwords, cause a lot of issues with your system or use your computer in a botnet. Here is a short enumeration of possible methods for using Trojans:

  • The last of the popular ways of using Trojans is to develop so-called botnets. By "botnet" we consider many computers, Apple devices or even "smart" TV's united by scammers in one web that they use for illegal activity. The multiplicity of actions varies from DDoS attacks on major websites to huge malspam campaigns, and it often calls limitations from Google for single IP address or the entire subnet.
  • Trojans, due to their invisibility, are almost ideal means for espionage. Trojan virus can dwell in contaminated system for a long time, gathering info against its operator, passwords, accounts, attended websites and, maybe, even any text entered through keyboard.

All these manners of Trojan usage might be carried out singly or altogether. Except written in the previous paragraphs aims, which directly benefit fraudsters, Trojans also have extra negatives: they operate your machine's recourses, block up its memory with unwanted software and interfere to exploit the PC for its primary function. Being aware of this, you'll totally endorse our verdict and eliminate Script/Cloxer.A!cl once and for all.
