How PDM Helps Trojan.Win32.Bazon.a?
A computing technique called PDM has been found to recently be involved in vicious attack by Trojan.Win32.Bazon.a. Let’s see how this technique helps with the vicious attack:
- PDM enables secure storage and easy access to user data.
- PDM can analyze data and find periodic components in time series data.
- PDM helps define a database structure, from the physical point of view and takes into account the physical structure.
Consequence of Getting PDM:Trojan.Win32.Bazon.a
- Additional virus, Trojan horse particularly, will be detected before long.
- The overall PC performance will be degraded considerably.
- More unknown processes will be caught to run in the background.
- Identity theft, information and money loss.
- Browser mass could occur.
- The computer becomes instable, error messages could be triggered and some program would shut it down abruptly.
PDM:Trojan.Win32.Bazon.a Dissemination Routine
As a Trojan horse, PDM:Trojan.Win32.Bazon.a would definitely adopt the typical dissemination routines:
- Makes up counterfeit but vivid websites to trap for clicks.
- Attacks the computers with vulnerability/bug.
- Capitalizes loosely programmed websites (like ads)/programs (like freeware).
- Bundles with virus especially Trojan downloader.
Is PDM:Trojan.Win32.Bazon.a FP?
It is a shared secret that some anti-virus program companies would detect (or you could say create) some so-called virus that other anti-virus programs won’t detect to make its security utility look more powerful and efficient.
Of course, there is another reason for the FP that is each anti-virus program company applies its own way to define a vicious binary string and has its own data based on its experience. This is why the same virus are called differently and some utility will not detect certain item.
If one doesn’t detect any trouble as the “Consequence of Getting PDM:Trojan.Win32.Bazon.a” section lists, then the alert about the Trojan horse can be FP. To add the detected file to the anti-virus program’s whitelist (take Kaspersky for example as it’s the only utility so far detects the Trojan horse), just upload the file to its email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
