Info about Virus:
Acting as a backdoor, a Trojan horse virus can easily contact a controller and get a free access to the computer, which is under attack. It is not that easy to detect the Trojan and its backdoors, but you can notice some slowdowns in the work of your computer in case the virus has already carried out some dangerous activity. If malware programs do not try to infuse into other files (computer virus) or advertise something (worm), then they are considered to be Trojans.
A Trojan may be hosted in the computer system in the form of executing files or Internet browser. To cope with this virus, call out network administration service at +1-***-***-**** (TOLL-FREE).
