Depending on where you download TablacusApp there is a chance you could install a Trojan together with it without even realizing it. Our specialists claim this might happen to anyone who gets the mentioned applications setup file through untrustworthy P2P file-sharing networks or other doubtful sources alike. The user could remove just the data belonging to the malware and leave the legitimate program be, but it is advisable to erase it too and then if there is a need the application might be installed again. Of course, in such situation, we recommend downloading its installer from the software’s official website. There are two ways to find out if the Trojan settled in on your PC: scan the device with a reliable security tool or check the data created after TablacusApp’s installation. If you choose the second option, you should read the article and learn how to locate the malware and to eliminate it manually we could suggest using the instructions we will add below this report.
It is not that TablacusApp is corrupted since it does not install any threats itself. Our specialists explain the Trojan is merely bundled with the application and once the bundled installer is launched it should settle on the device without asking any permission. To avoid such situations, users should avoid visiting web pages that distribute pirated software, unreliable freeware applications, and so on because the setup files there can be bundled with various threats. A smarter choice would be to download the application from its official web page or its official distributor’s website, although you have to be sure the program is reliable because even potentially dangerous software can have homepages. Another way to stay away from malicious programs and guard the system is to keep a legitimate antimalware tool installed. It can stop various attacks and warn the user, so if you do not have it yet, we recommend considering it.
Once the TablacusApp bundled with Trojan named as HomepageDefender is installed, it is supposed to add a folder called TablacusApp, although there might be some digit at the end of it, e.g., TablacusApp2. Inside of this folder the user should find another folder with the same name and an executable file called TablacusApp.exe. This is the file that belongs to the mentioned malware. However, it is not all since our researchers learned there is also a value name called TablacusApp2, or similarly; it is related to the threat too. The value name we are talking about should be located in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, possibly for the malicious application to be able to run with the operating system or in other words to automatically launch itself after a restart.
So far there is still little information on what the described malware could do, but what we do know for certain is that it will not do anything good for the system. Thus, we believe users should erase it the moment they learn about its existence. Along with the Trojan, we would advise removing TablacusApp because there might be other variants and some other harmful files could be added to its data. If you still need this tool, we would recommend acquiring it from a reliable source. To delete the threat and the application itself manually you should complete the steps provided below this paragraph. Those who prefer using automatic features could acquire a trustworthy antimalware tool instead and let it deal with the possibly malicious files.
