Sub7 is not for kids

I was digging a while ago and found an article regarding Sub7 trojan virus. Anyway, according to wikipedia, a Trojan is a term used to describe malware that appears, to the user, to perform a desirable function but, in fact, facilitates unauthorized access to the user's computer system. Trojan horse program purposefully does something the user does not expect.

The article showed how easy it is to use a sub7 or subseven malicious program to attack anybody's computers. Sub7 is pretty old, I played with it like 15 years ago. Anyway, since this software is so easy to use, you also might want to know how to remove a Trojan. Removing a trojan horse virus is pretty tricky, because these viruses don't show up as a normal file.

Infection & Installation of Trojan Horse via Wikipedia

Software downloads (e.g. A Trojan horse included as part of a software application downloaded from File sharing networks)

Websites containing executable content (e.g. A Trojan horse in the form of an ActiveX control)

Email attachments

Application exploits (Flaws in a web browser, media player, messaging client or other software which can be exploited to allow installation of a Trojan horse)

Social Engineering (e.g. A hacker tricking a user into installing a Trojan horse by communicating with them directly)

If you ask how to remove a sub7's not easy! First try Google to look for tools that will be able to detect a trojan virus. Make sure you don't download an infected software, or else this will make your problem worst. You may also try the Mcafee website, look for these tools, they also provide DIY manual removal instructions.
