WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 Description

Type: Trojan

WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 is a Trojan infection that spreads via peer-to-peer connections and other, typical threat delivery vehicles. Many computer users have reported that their firewall or that their anti-virus software reports a WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1. If your computer is infected with WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1, it is crucial that you remove WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 immediately with a reliable security application that is fully up-to-date. WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 represents a critical threat to your computer's security, your privacy and your data. Failure to remove WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 immediately may put your computer at risk or expose you to theft or further attacks. Some types of low-level threats and rogue security programs may cause pop-up messages to appear that indicate the presence of WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 on a computer. In these cases, WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 is not infecting the computer but, rather, the threat in question is attempting to convince the computer user to pay for a fake security program or a technical support hoax.

How WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 may Fool a Computer User

The majority of WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 infections are located in Europe, although WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 have occurred outside of European countries. WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 is an infection classified as a Trojan Horse or Trojan for short. These types of threats receive this designation because their attack is very similar to the strategy used to take the city of Troy in classic literature. Like the Trojan Horse from the story, WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 pretends to be a legitimate program and relies on the computer user to download and execute the threatening file. Once the file is executed, WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 releases its payload, a corrupted code designed to install itself on the targeted computer and carry out its attack.

Trojans like WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 cannot spread by themselves but rely on computer users themselves to open them. To do this, Trojans may use social engineering and are disguised as other files. Because of this, spam email attachments and peer-to-peer file sharing are common methods for distributing Trojans. In fact, WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 is very commonly distributed on file sharing networks. WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 may be disguised as a coveted pirated movie or media file in an attempt to entice PC users to download and install WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1. Since the file is small, it may be packaged along with a popular video and labeled as a necessary video codec or other, similar file.

WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 Alerts may not Indicate the Presence of this Threat

WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 alerts may not always be directly linked to this threat. Most of the time, computer users may realize that WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 is installed on their computer because they have observed a pop-up message, notifications, or window that claims that the computer's firewall or anti-virus program has intercepted a WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 infection. In many cases, these types of notifications aren't displayed by the security components themselves but by another type of infection that may be a low-level threat designed to carry out a known technical support hoax.

There are low-level threats that are designed to convince computer users to call a bogus technical support hotline. These low-level threats may cause other symptoms that are meant to trick inexperienced computer users into calling this number, believing that their computer is infected with threats. Pop-ups indicating the presence of WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 and other known threats are a common occurrence in these cases. Rogue security programs are fake anti-virus programs that are used to trick inexperienced computer users into paying for an expensive 'full version' or license in order to eliminate nonexistent threats. Pop-up messages from these kinds of rogue security applications, indicating the presence of WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 and other known threats, are also a common part of this tactic. If you are receiving WormP2P.Tanked.Trojanv1.1 pop-ups, it may be necessary to remove these kinds of threats from your computer.
