The most widespread malicious software


Every malware attack shares a common goal: to steal vital information and funds, thereby causing delays in operation and havoc, which in most cases are irrevocable. This plague is what every IT personnel and security expert is looking out for, knowing that they come in different dimensions ranging from emails, software, websites, shared files, networks, etc.

Adwares, worms, and ransomware, to mention but a few, are all malicious but not as deadly as Trojan viruses which account for 52 percent of all malware attacks globally. Trojan depicts one rare quality, which is concealing its motive from its victim, and most times, looks legitimate. It doesn't spread on its own rather it depends on the activity of its victim to get a strong hold on its cybersystem.

This virus gives the attacker access to control your device remotely, taking down every detail in important files, which he can download, upload, or delete at his own will. Both bank details and any social or business account login passwords are exposed to the attacker, and in most cases, the victims are unaware that their security has been compromised.

Zeus, wirenet, and mobile banking trojans are more common these days and have recorded some successful hacks which resulted in the loss of billions of dollars with cash and vital document inclusive in the history of trojan havoc.
