Trojan.Lameshield is a generic detection method that indicates the presence of a Trojan dropper associated with various fake security programs. Most of the time, Trojan.Lameshield will not be present on its own on the victim’s computer. Rather, the detection of Trojan.Lameshield will be accompanied with several other malware threats since Trojan.Lameshield is usually a single component in an integrated, multi-component malware attack. If your security software is indicating the presence of Trojan.Lameshield, ESG security researchers recommend using a reliable anti-malware scanner to analyse your hard drives to be sure that your machine is not compromised by malware. It is also valuable to mention that, rarely, legitimate, non-malicious files may be confused with a Trojan.Lameshield infection.
Trojans, unlike viruses and worms, cannot spread on their own. Trojans will usually disguise themselves as legitimate files, which will release a dangerous payload when opened. While this social engineering approach is essential to most Trojans, these malware threats will also use secondary malware infections in order to attack computer systems. A Trojan dropper, such as Trojan.Lameshield, is a Trojan infection that is designed to install other malware threats on the victim’s computer. By adding links to the chain of a multi-component malware attack, criminals can make it significantly more difficult to detect or remove these threats entirely. Trojan.Lameshield is a Trojan dropper that is usually associated with fake security programs.
Trojan.Lameshield and Rogue Security Applications
Bogus security programs are some of the most pervasive and long-lived online scams. These are basically fake security applications that use false positives and alarming messages in order to convince their victims to purchase expensive upgrades. These fake security programs will usually be associated with a particular Trojan and may be protected with a rootkit component. To attack a computer, a rogue security program’s infection will often be initially installed with the help of a Trojan dropper. Trojan.Lameshield has been known to ‘drop’ various fake security programs belonging to several different families of rogue security software on the victim’s computer. Because of this, a Trojan.Lameshield infection will usually indicate the companionship of other threats on the compromised computer.
