Virtumonde is a Trojan which forms part of the well publicized and despised Vundo family of Trojans. It does not seek the user’s permission before forcefully entering and rooting itself in the system, and will proceed to cause havoc on the user’s system. It carries the infection of rogue security applications, some of which have been identified as WinFixer, SysProtect and WinAntiSpwyare.
The Trojan will proceed to cause severely poor system performance and cause erratic system behavior. It will generate fake security pop up messages which will inform the user that he needs to purchase the proffered rogue antispyware application. It will also make the system more vulnerable to other malware infections, as Virtumonde opens up security holes in the infected system.
Through many evolutions over time, Virtumonde has evolved so much that it has become much more difficult to get rid of Virtumonde. Methods that Virtumonde uses to avoid detection and removal range from using random names, burying itself in random autorun locations, random CLSIDs and the use of rootkits in order to hide itself on the system. This makes it increasingly more difficult for users to manually remove Virtumonde.
Do not allow this harmful and seditious Trojan to cause permanent damage to your system. Use a genuine and powerful security tool to destroy Virtumonde and protect your PC against similar attacks in future.
