miAPCP trojan


miAPCP is a Trojan virus that easily got into the system with your assistance, and you installed it with your own hands. This virus can call problems on your machine, and we earnestly advise you to get rid of it as soon as you'll finish reading this article. In this part of an article we will tell you how Trojan viruses infect the system and how to distinguish decent tool from Trojan. In the very beginning, we should explain you the crucial things about Trojans. The name "Trojan" is very accurate: viruses of this kind stealthy penetrate victims' devices, pretending to be licensed programs, but they can't spread themselves. Viruses aren't equal to Trojans, because viruses can act independently, and Trojans need to be maintained and directed. Trojans are like parasites: they are absolutely useless and feeble, but with help of the host they could create serious issues. The owners of the Trojan have to give it the guise of a decent program, and put the Trojan to a highly visited web-resource from which it will be accessible to a huge numbers of potential victims. Since then, the program waits until a gullible visitor downloads it and installs it on his device. One more significant thing about Trojans is that they usually are being distributed through bundling, which means that they infect the PC in one bundle with several other viruses.


In spite of many bounds in the methods of spreading, Trojans are highly efficient after the penetration through system's defense. Trojan viruses are the largest kind of unwanted programs, and might use your system in a criminal scam, cause a lot of issues with your device or steal your passwords. Here is a brief enumeration of possible manners to use Trojan viruses:

  • Trojans, thanks to their invisibility, are almost ideal utilities for spying on common users. Trojan can live in an unprotected PC for years, collecting information about its owner, attended websites, accounts, passwords and, possibly, even any text entered through keyboard.
  • The less efficient way of using Trojans is to create so-called botnets. By these we mean hundreds of PC's, Macs or even "smart" TV's united by fraudsters in one net that they use for criminal purposes. The list of purposes varies from DDoS attacks on legal websites to massive spamming campaigns, and it often results in restrictions from Google for single IP address or the whole subnet.

All these methods of using Trojan viruses can be carried out separately or altogether. In addition to the enumerated in the previous paragraphs head purposes, which directly benefit fraudsters, Trojans also have side effects: they exploit your computer's recourses, clog the system with unwanted programs and interfere to use the workstation for its initial function. Realizing this, you will listen to our tip and remove all Trojans for good.
