The Trojan horse is a subject of debate within the cybercrime underground, but there is no doubt that WinWhatWhere is the best way to get access to the largest databases of people’s financial data. The Trojan horse has been around for years, but it’s only recently that this particular tool has been used in large quantities. Some say it’s the rise of Linux as a platform that is bringing the Trojan horse into the mainstream, but it seems that the internet has never been more open to hackers than it is today.
The way that WinWhatWhere works is fairly simple. It’s able to gain access to any PC by tricking the user into thinking they are visiting a legitimate site when in fact they are being redirected to an infected site.
When the PC visits the website, WinWhatWhere opens up a “viewer” and loads up the Trojan horse, which can be loaded up with all sorts of spyware, adware, and other software that allow it to infiltrate the PC even further. Once it has been loaded, WinWhatWhere has all the ability it needs to collect information from the PC. For example, it can log keystrokes, steal email addresses, and even read and delete files on the PC.
The software doesn’t need to be directly run on the computer, so it doesn’t run with any kind of complete control of the computer. It will also only work if it can obtain a username and password.
There have been reports of users suffering a serious breach of their personal information, but no evidence has been found to confirm this. Users do, however, have the choice to protect themselves against WinWhatWhere and other infections by installing good anti-virus software, particularly one called Firewall Shield.
It will scan all the files and folders on the computer and remove any that are infected and have the Trojan horse. It will also show you the infection, giving you the option to remove it.
For Windows PCs, you will need to visit your internet service provider and remove the WinWhatWhere executable from the internet. If you don’t already have firewall software installed, you can download it from your website and install it to your PC.
You can also use different ways of uninstalling the application, but it is better to remove it from the first place. This will stop WinWhatWhere from doing harm to your computer.
