What is Trojan:DOS/Alureon.E? Have difficulty in removing it after your anti-virus couldn’t terminate it once and for all? Don’t worry, this post will show you how to remove this stubborn virus completely and manually.
Trojan:DOS/Alureon.E is one of the malicious and lethal Trojan virus that can cause great harm to the computer system you use. This horrible Trojan virus is designed by cyber criminals to attack innocent computer users without any early warning and precaution. It crashs down a computer system by using HTTP protocol as a bridge of transaction to install their own executables (components of malware) into your computer.
Generally speaking, Trojan:DOS/Alureon.E settles itself down on a computer without any awareness or attention and then becomes a stealer of personal information and confidential data stored on the computer. That’s why many computer users will lose their information when they found their personal information such as credit card number, bank account and social security number exposed to the public. It seems that there’s someone lurking in the house, watching and recording everything. Once it is through to the PC, it copies itself to the start up code of the system in order to get started automatically whenever you log into the computer system. What’s worse is, it will sneak into the computer system and open a backdoor on your computer that allows attackers to access and steal crucial data, delete important files and initiate additional attacks on the computer system and network that you use. Particularly malevolent attackers can flood your system with data requests and emails and overloading the PC until it get crashed completely.
