VirusBurst

 

Heard about VirusBurst? If not, you probably should have. VirusBurst is rogue anti-spyware. It can install itself on your computer.

Understanding rogue anti-spyware may not be as easy as it seems. Simply put, rogue anti-spyware is questionable software. It has not been proven to remove spyware or adware. It uses several tactics that you should be aware of.

  • Rogue anti-spyware is known to give fake alerts indicating that your computer is infected with threats that are not really there.
  • Rogue anti-spyware mimics the look of legitimate anti-spyware.
  • Rogue anti-spyware will pressure computer users to purchase the anti-spyware application by scaring them or tricking them.
  • Rogue anti-spyware may be very vague in its detections. It might tell the user that the computer is infected with a certain number of parasites, but not give any details about the parasites.
  • Rogue anti-spyware might scan the computer, but be weak in doing so. It may skip right over important files and folders that need to be scanned.

Curious about how it gets there in the first place? There are a few ways that this can happen. A Trojan can install it. It can come bundled with other software that is loaded on your computer. It can also install itself via security holes in the web browser.

Being aware of how Trojans work is your first line of defense. Trojans install themselves on computers without the user's knowledge. They take over the computer, then the Trojan and the hacker that created the Trojan can change as well as delete your files, steal passwords and watch all activity on the computer.

The Trojans can install themselves a few different ways. They can come in through infected emails. This can be done when an email with attachments is downloaded or simply by opening an infected email. They can also come in through websites. This can be done if the user visits a rogue website. Another way that they can come in is through open ports. File sharing functions, such as AOL Instant Messenger or MSN Messenger, make your computer vulnerable to Trojans.

How does this relate to VirusBurst? VirusBurst is a Trojan that appears to be finding and removing spyware from your computer, but it does not. Instead it might give you alerts such as this: "Critical System Error!  System detected virus activity. They may cause critical system failure. Please, use antimalware software to clean and protect your system from parasite programs. Click this balloon to get all available software." If you click on the balloon you are taken to a professional looking website. The website tries to convince you to purchase the "anti-spyware."

What is the specific path that VirusBurst takes to get into your computer? Many times an infected "codec" is installed into the media player. Codecs are needed for the media player to play music and video files. VirusBurst, then, tricks the user to download the codec. The user thinks that the codec is needed to play the music or video.

How do you know if your computer is infected with VirusBurst or other Trojans? VirusBurst and Trojans will slow your computer down. If your computer is slower than normal to reboot, or if your internet connection seems slower than normal, then your computer may be infected. Your internet settings on your homepage may be changed without your knowledge. You may also notice new shortcuts on your desktop. VirusBurst and Trojans may bombard you with pop-ups. The pop-ups can happen even if you are not logged onto the internet.

If you think that you have VirusBurst, you need to remove it. You can remove VirusBurst manually, however, be aware that if you do so it is at a great risk. Removing VirusBurst manually can destroy your computer. If you choose to take a risk and remove it manually, here is what you need to do:

-Remove VirusBurst processes: virusburst.exe.

-Remove VirusBurst registry values: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRunVirusBurst

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionApp PathsVirusBurst.exe

-Unregister VirusBurst DLLs: eowygj.dll

-Delete and remove the DLL files: virusburst.exe, eowygj.dll, and vb.ini

You should only do this if you know what you are doing. Remember that if you choose to remove VirusBurst manually you are doing so at your own risk.

If you don't want to go through all of that to get rid of it, another option for removing VirusBurst is to use a reputable anti-spyware program such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) . These programs, after installation, will sweep every file and folder on the computer in an effort to clean off any parasites that have infected your computer. They will tell you exactly which parasites were on your computer. The reputable anti-spyware programs also prevent spyware from attempting to install itself on the computer. It is important to check product reviews when looking for a reputable anti-spyware program. You can read consumer reviews and reports on each anti-spyware that is out there.

What if you decide not to remove VirusBurst? Ultimately, it is your choice whether you remove the pest or not. If you do not remove VirusBurst you need to know that your computer system will be damaged and your privacy is in danger.

Be aware that VirusBurst is not the only Trojan of this type. Many others that are very similar to VirusBurst exist within the same family. They are a part of the Smitfraud infection. The Trojans in this family often gives similar false messages in order to try to convince you to purchase their "anti-spyware."

Future protection of your computer is also important. You can do a few things to keep your computer safe from unwanted parasites and unwanted rogue anti-spyware such as VirusBurst.

-You can install a web browser that is not popular, such as Opera or Mozilla Firefox. These browsers are not targeted as much as browsers such as Internet Explorer.

-You can also install a firewall or web proxy. These will block websites that are known to install spyware.

-You can install a large hosts file, which will prevent the computer users from connecting to web addresses that are known to be spyware related.

Whatever you choose to do, make sure that you remove all parasites as soon as you can. If VirusBurst has been installed on your computer, be sure that you remove it as soon as possible so that you do not risk your privacy any longer and you can save your computer from damage.
