The Downloader.Picproot malware is categorized by security experts as a trojan downloader that is used by hackers to introduce other malware on already compromised systems. The Picproot trojan can be seen as an attached binary file to spam emails and is programmed to drop its payload in the Credentials or the System Certificates folder under the ApplciationData directory. Additionally, the Picproot trojan deletes all task in the Windows Task Manager and adds a registry key to start every time you turn on your computer. Security researchers report that the Picproot trojan adds itself as an authority in the Windows Help Assistant and connects to several websites to download multiple image files incorporating malware using stenography. The malware downloaded by the Picproot trojan is stored in the ApplicationData folder and decrypted to be executed on the victim's PC. The Picproot trojan downloader can install viruses, keyloggers and worm on your system that can be used by criminals to compromise networks and steal your banking and social media log-ins. Security researchers advise users to install a trustworthy anti-malware suite to protect their files and credentials from the activities of the Picproot trojan.
