InnfiRAT is a malicious application with backdoor capabilities. It means that hackers behind this malware might be able to access an infected device repeatedly. Moreover, our specialists say that its creators should be able to send the threat commands or tasks they want to be performed remotely. Therefore, the malicious application was classified as a RAT (Remote Access Trojan). If you want to know more about what such a threat might be able to do to a system, we invite you to read the rest of our report. As usual, the last paragraph talks about the malware’s deletion, and if you take a look at the guide located below it, you should find step by step instructions, which explain how it might be possible to get rid of InnfiRAT manually.

There are a couple of possible distribution channels that are often used to spread malicious applications, such as InnfiRAT. One of them is untrustworthy web pages. Since the malware’s launcher’s copy might be called NvidiaDriver.exe, the threat's installer could look like a driver or an update, and it might be spread through torrent and other unreliable file-sharing networks. The other way to distribute the malware would be to send its installer to potential victims via email. Hackers might come up with a message that might say it is crucial for a user to open the attached file to convince you to open the malware’s installer. Keep in mind that the malware’s launcher may look like a text file, a picture, an update, etc. Thus, a file’s appearance may not necessarily give away that it could be malicious. If you are not sure, it is best to scan data in question with a legit security tool.
To make sure the malware’s victims would be unable to stop its process, InnfiRAT should check for the following process and end them: taskmgr, procceshacker, procmon, procexp, pchunter, and procexp64. Also, the malware might close browsing applications. Afterward, it might receive commands asking to record data from the user's browser cookies, gather information about a user’s Bitcoin or Litecoin wallets, and capture screen images. Consequently, it might be able to collect lots of sensitive information. All of the gathered information could end up on the malware’s creators’ server. Needless to say that from there, it could be used to scam victims, take over their accounts, or it might be sold on the dark web. To prevent this from happening or to stop the malware from obtaining even more data, we advise removing InnfiRAT as fast as possible.
Since the malicious application might kill Task Manager and all other programs that could end the malware’s process, it might be necessary to restart a computer in Safe Mode with Networking. After doing so, you would have two ways to erase InnfiRAT. If you wish to get rid of it manually, you should locate all data associated with this threat and delete it permanently. The instructions located at the end of this paragraph can help you with this task. The other way to eliminate InnfiRAT is to install a reliable antimalware tool and perform a full system check-up. Once the scanning is over, you should be able to remove this Trojan and other possible threats by pressing a provided deletion button.
