Trojan horses` reputation is well-deserved. They are capable of causing all kinds of damage to you and your machine. Don’t think that Trojan.Sofacy!g1 is any different. It is not.

It ads and/or removes entries from it which causes some of your program to fail to work properly. Also, the Trojan hijacks your browsers and redirects you to suspicious pages all the time. It bombards you with numerous ads as well. However, what Trojans are mostly known for is their ability to spy on users and steal personal information. Everything you do online gets monitored and recorded by the pest. If you use your machine to pay bills online or for online purchases, the virus may even steal your real name, billing address, credit card information, etc. What is worse than that is the fact that Trojan.Sofacy!g1 sends everything it gathers to the people who created it.

The pest communicates with a Command and Control server which means that the crooks have access to everything the Trojan has access to. There is no need of explaining why this is incredibly dangerous, is there? Hackers are the last people who should have a hold of your private details.

How did Trojan.Sofacy!g1 enter your system without you realizing. One of the most popular infiltration techniques Trojan use is spam email messages.
