Cycbot Trojan

What is Cycbot Trojan?

It is common for rogue antispyware to arrive at your system via some other malicious program that infects your computer first. The same scheme applies to Cycbot trojan. This backdoor Trojan distributes such rogue antispyware applications as Palladium, ThinkPoint, CleanThis and others. Therefore, if you remove Cycbot trojan in time, you will prevent a much more serious infection. Unfortunately, most of the time Cycbot trojan remains unnoticed for a very long time and causes a lot of problems.

The most common symptoms of this infection is slow computer and slow Internet connection, but that is not something unusual. Most of the Trojan infections have the same symptoms. Nevertheless, since Cycbot trojan is a backdoor Trojan, it allows unauthorized third party access and control of your computer. Hence, if you notice something strange about your computer performance, we recommend checking your Task Manager for such running processes as dwm.exe, shell.exe and svchost.exe.

Naturally, svchost.exe is a legitimate Windows process, but Cycbot trojan makes use of the name to hide itself from security products. The file that belongs to the Trojan is located at C:/doxuments and settings/administrator/application data/microsoft/svchost.exe. What is more, Cycbot trojan also adds more additional entrances into the registry that makes sure that the malicious program loads automatically whenever you turn on your computer.

Apart from being related to rogue antispyware applications, Cycbot trojan can store your system data and then send it over to a remote server at bigkeystore.com, pcdocpro.com, motherboardstest.com and other addresses. Therefore, even if this backdoor Trojan does not download a rogue program, your system is still very vulnerable, because Cycbot trojan can visit various web links without your knowledge in order to generate money via pay-per-click advertising.

It most efficient way to get rid of Cycbot trojan is to remove it automatically with SpyHunter. Although some users resort to removing such infections manually, we do not recommend that, because it could be a very complicated task to accomplish. Remove Cycbot trojan with a computer security program that will also scan for any other infections.
