First detected in 2007, the HTML/iFrame.B Trojan is a dangerous malware threat designed to connect to a remote server and to infect your computer system with other Trojans. HTML/iFrame.B is considered to be a severe malware infection, capable of wreaking havoc on your computer system. While this Trojan has been around for quite a long time, in 2012 HTML/iFrame.B is still a relevant malware infection. In fact, HTML/iFrame.B was among the top ten most common malware infections that PC security researchers detected in the month of November of 2011. Many of the details regarding HTML/iFrame.B still pose considerable challenges for PC security analysts. However, preventing a HTML/iFrame.B Trojan infection can be done using the same PC security guidelines that apply to protecting your computer from any of the most common malware threats:

  • Be extremely careful when handling unknown files, links, websites, or other online material.
  • Be wary of unsolicited emails and never open file attachments or embedded links included in these kinds of email messages.
  • Stay away from websites that are typically sources of malware infections. These include adult video websites, file sharing and torrent websites and most web pages containing illegal content (such as pirated software or drug-related content).

Understanding how HTML/iFrame.B Threatens Your Computer’s Security

HTML/iFrame.B is a kind of Trojan infection known as a downloader Trojan. These kinds of Trojans can access an unknown server and download and install malicious software on the victim's computer system. Because of their very nature, Trojans cannot spread on their own. Unlike viruses or worms, a Trojan requires that the user download and install it onto their computer. Because of this, Trojans will often require another malware threat to help them enter the victim's computer, or they will rely on social engineering and deceptive tactics to convince the victim that the Trojan itself is actually a beneficial or useful file. HTML/iFrame.B acts as an intermediary, charged with delivering and installing other Trojans onto the victim's computer. Once installed, HTML/iFrame.B establishes a connection to a remote server and downloads a Trojan infection designed to allow a criminal to manage your PC from an unknown location. Usually, HTML/iFrame.B will be the first step in a full-blown malware infestation of the victim's computer system. This is because, once the criminal has gained control over the victim's computer, he/she is free to install spy Trojans, keyloggers, and other dangerous applications.
