I wrote this article to help you remove Cloud Packager . This Cloud Packager removal guide works for all Windows versions.

Cloud Packager is a miner Trojan. This kind of virus has dominated the ranks in recent months. The reason for their booming popularity is the high profit rate they can achieve. What these programs do is to collect cryptocoins from the open web. Cloud Packager gathers Bitcoins, Monero, LiteCoin, Dash, Ripple, DarkCoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies. Digital payments are becoming increasingly common in contemporary trade. This makes trade easier for both vendors and customers. Due to the lack of a physical realm, the task of assuring the security of the transactions needs to be handled by a digital entity. This is where cryptocurrencies come in. They have been conceived to make monetary transfers secure for sellers and buyers alike. The resulting increase in their price has caught the eye of cyber criminals.

Cloud Packager is one of many miners to be launched lately. The Trojan seeks to penetrate computer systems. They have the resources it requires to conduct its malicious attacks. Cloud Packager builds a botnet to establish a connection between all infected devices. It constantly launches remote attacks to penetrate more machines. The Trojan uses up the collective resources of all connected systems when running its designated tasks. Their number determines how much capacity the sinister program has to its disposal. One of the operations on the agenda of Cloud Packager is to spread copies of itself. The Trojan can use your computer to infiltrate a remote device located in a different country or continent and vice versa.

Cloud Packager is distributed via malvertising campaigns. The most common tactic is sending a fake email message. The covert program is packed with an attached file. The sender will describe it as an important document and urge you to open it right away. Accessing the file would allow the virus into your system. Spammers tend to misrepresent existing companies and organizations. This gives their messages legitimacy. If you receive an unexpected notification from the post office, a courier firm, a bank, an institution, a government branch, the police or any other entity, do not assume it is real just because of the sender’s identity. Do your research by checking the contacts to confirm that the letter was really sent by the stated entity.

Another common propagation vector is drive-by installations. The transfer of the secluded program is conducted by a website. You would get infected by visiting the platform or following a link to it. Our advice to users is to filter their sources. If you are unfamiliar with a given website, check what others have to say about it. When it comes to links, you need to be sure that the person who has provided it can be trusted. The final technique we will discuss is bundling. Cloud Packager can be packed with a pirated program, a freeware or shareware application. The download client will offer you to have an additional tool installed as a bonus. The wizard will have it marked per default. If you do not change the settings, it will get your permission to enter your system per default. Make sure you read the end user license agreement (EULA) of all utilities you add to your computer.

Cloud Packager will use your computer to mine the web for cryptocoins. The insidious program can steal money from online platforms and send them to its developers. Having your device used for this purpose essentially makes you an accomplice. The hackers behind the Trojan can cover their tracks easily. This is what makes these viruses so effective and dangerous. As soon as you discover Cloud Packager in your computer, take measures to have it removed. It may take you a while to notice the symptoms for the presence of the shady program. The signs include slow performance speed, freezes, crashes and error messages. This can all be attributed to different problems. To check for a potential threat, open your Task Manager and look for suspicious processes. Failure to act on time can lead to further issues, including legal charges. You are required by law to report any criminal misuse which involves your personal computer.
