Now we will talk about aBSunset, that infected the computer, and you unwittingly helped it to do so. aBSunset is not helpful and has no advantages, so it has to be uninstalled as soon as possible. Here we'll tell you how Trojans infect your system and how to distinguish helpful tool from Trojan. Here's the short description of Trojan viruses, of their abilities, pros and cons. The name “Trojan virus” is an actual definition: software of this sort secretly penetrates users' machines, trying to look like decent tools, but they cannot spread themselves. In fact, Trojans are not really the viruses, because viruses know how to reproduce and independently distribute themselves. Trojans rely on people totally, at all times of their existence. The owners of the Trojan have to give it the form of a useful software, and upload the Trojan to a well-known web-resource from which it will be accessible to a large numbers of users. The place of little malware's second host is free, and if you like these little programs - just install as many suspicious tools as possible, and soon you'll get one. You should know that Trojans are rarely distributed separately, but in most cases you can get them in packages also known as “bundles” that consist of few malware, adware, viruses or Trojans.

When Trojan after all infects the system it begins to achieve its goals, which usually means nothing good for the PC. Trojan viruses are the largest type of undesired programs, and might scrounge the passwords, cause serious damage to your computer or include your system in a criminal scam. Here is a complete enumeration of possible ways for using Trojans:

  • The less effective way of using Trojans is to make botnets. By "botnet" we mean thousands of computers, Macs or even "smart" vacuum cleaners combined by scammers in one web that they use for various activity. With the assistance of suchlike webs they make attacks on big web-pages, provide a lot of malicious e-mails and apply their computing powers for other tasks, like crypto-currency farming.
  • Trojans, because of their stealthiness, are just ideal means for espionage. Trojan virus can exist in contaminated PC for years, gathering information against its operator, visited websites, passwords, accounts and, possibly, even the text entered via keyboard.

All these ways of applying Trojan viruses can be carried out solely or altogether. Except enumerated above major goals, which at first-hand give profit to fraudsters, Trojans have multiple side negatives: they operate your PC's recourses, choke the system with useless programs and interfere to run the PC for its initial mission. Knowing this, you will absolutely agree with our opinion and get rid of all Trojans once and for all.
