Win64/Sirefef.AL Description:

Win64/Sirefef.AL is a harmful Trojan that can perform same evil tasks on the infected PC like Trojan:Win32/Sirefef.AL does. It mainly targets to attack computers with 64 bits. This tricky virus can compromise your computer by exploiting system security leaks. It is able to drop other threat such as Win64/Patched.B.Gen on the infected system and make your PC at risk.

After successfully installed, it can disable most of antivirus to avoid detection or removal. However, if you have ESET antivirus program installed, there is still a chance to detect the presence of this Trojan. Although ESET can detect it, it is not able to remove  Win64/Sirefef.AL as well since it will keep popping up every minute even after cleaning. This virus embeds deeply in an infected system to make the removal rather difficult. It drops and executes malicious files and even hijacks the web browser, redirecting users to others suspicious websites. Being as a dangerous Trojan, it enables cyber criminals to gain remote access to the compromised PC system and notably slows down PC performance. Therefore, users should get rid of virus as soon as possible to avoid further damages.

Manual removal is a risky job since any pivotal system files are removed, you cannot log in Windows at all. If you are a computer newbie or need any further help, you are welcome to contact YooCare Online Tech Support for help.

Win64/Sirefef.AL includes backdoor capabilities that opens network ports so as to download and install additional malware threats onto the infected computer. By corrupting essential system files and Windows drivers, this type of Trojan becomes very difficult to detect due to the fact that these files will often not be scanned by anti-malware software. It can make your PC deep in crisis. Even system restore won’t help to clean it up. It is suggested users to follow the manual guide above to remove it for good.
