You will not notice when Client Maximus slithers in, and you are unlikely to notice when it steals money from you, which is exactly why this infection is considered to be critical. According to the latest information, this devious threat is either downloaded using a malicious NSIS installer or using a website loading a malicious JavaScript. In both cases, the infection is downloaded silently, and that is why we classify it as a Trojan. You might be letting it in yourself, but you will not know what it is until the damage is done. Even then, you might not realize that a silent Trojan is responsible. Most users are likely to discover this threat when they find a discrepancy in their banking accounts’ balances. Unfortunately, this malware could leak money from your account, and that is why you should delete Client Maximus as soon as possible.

How did you discover Client Maximus? Did you use a reliable malware scanner, and the malicious Trojan came up in the scanner results? Since this threat is silent, you are unlikely to notice it in any other way. Of course, you might find malicious components. According to our research, this threat usually hides in such directories as %APPDATA%, %HOMEDRIVE%, or %LOCALAPPDATA%. When our research team was analyzing the threat, its components were found in the “Windows Anytime Upgrade” folder that was located under %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\. Since the directory is legitimate, and the name of the folder looks authentic as well, users are unlikely to discover Client Maximus on their own. Of course, if you are experienced, and you can spot files that are placed in an unusual location, you might be able to delete the threat before it does anything bad. Unfortunately, most users are likely to remain oblivious to this infection until bad things start happening.

As you already know, Client Maximus can affect your online banking. How does it do that? Our research team informs that the files of this banking Trojan have the ability to monitor your activity. One more thing to mention is that this malware is likely to do that if you live in Brazil. Once executed, this threat knows when you are using your online banking, and it steals login information and reads the content you are viewing. Due to this, Client Maximus might have the ability to hijack your accounts and, potentially, impersonate you online. Using this, illegal transactions could be made from your banking accounts, and illicit payments could be made using banking account data. This could lead to the loss of money. If that happens, you need to call your bank representative immediately. First and foremost, they have to be aware of the attack. Second, you need the help they can provide you with.

Do you know where Client Maximus hides within your operating system? If you do not, how do you expect to successfully delete it manually? If you expect to be successful by going around and removing random unfamiliar files, you could do more harm than good. If you are determined to kill this threat yourself, we suggest employing a malware scanner. It might help you discover the infection. As you can tell, manual removal is not the option we recommend. Instead, we advise trusting a legitimate anti-malware tool. If you think it will stop serving you after it removes Client Maximus, you are wrong. If other threats exist, they will be erased as well. Moreover, the protection will be strengthened to ensure that other banking Trojans or other infections do not invade your operating system in the future. If you need to discuss the Trojan or its elimination further, use the comments section.
