Remove Trojan.Huntpos

April 12, 2016

I just don’t want to be in a situation where I am doing an important report in which my job hangs at a balance when suddenly my PC gets infected by malware. That is why I always use the services of reputable antimalware and firewall companies. It is a big no no to leave your computer unprotected especially if your job depends on it.  Now more than ever, it is imperative to always be on guard for potential malicious software or malware attacks.  

Just this April 1, 2016, a group of IT security professionals have noticed a strange malware, classified as a Trojan Horse,  waiting to pounce on unwary computers. They discovered that this malicious software creates backdoor access or openings for other malware to do their intended purposes. They named it Trojan.huntpos. It is relatively easy to remove Trojan.huntpos though ad it is classified as a low threat malware.

This Trojan Horse can infect computer systems running Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 operating systems. It mainly spreads through downloads from torrent sites, previously infected USB flash drives, and external hard drives.

In most cases, the most reliable way to remove Trojan.huntpos is to do a clean system install. This involves deleting all the contents of your hard drive down to the last bit before reinstalling a fresh copy of your operating system.  You also have to reinstall all system drivers and all the software you are using including office apps. This method is only good if you have previously made a backup of your files. That is why it is always best to create backups to all your important files. You’ll need those in times like this.

Since  this malware is classified as a low risk threat, you can always run a full system scan of your favorite antivirus or antimalware software to remove Trojan.huntpos. You can use Malwarebytes, Avast, AVG, BitDefender, Comodo, Norton Power Eraser, SuperAntiSpyware.

Whatever your work may be, if you use a computer make sure you have installed good firewall and antivirus software. Some may not be cheap and will definitely leave a hole in your pocket but you can sleep soundly knowing that all your work files will be protected. It is always better to have a pocket a few hundred dollars  less than to have your data and information stolen from you.
