Microsoft, one of the major names worldwide where software is concerned, has stumbled upon a rather interesting discovery. First of all, a little context to help us get started off on the right footing. Microsoft does have their own anti-virus solution on the computer, where some have deemed to be added on as an afterthought since it is perceived to be nowhere near the capability of other third-party programs, but this does not mean the bunch of Microsoft researchers are no good. On the contrary, a recent post on the Microsoft Malware Protection Center blog has showed that Microsoft has discovered a totally new Trojan malware threat which has been called “TrojanDownloader:Win32/Nemim.gen!A”.
This particular new threat is said to be able to delete its own files right after it has been installed on a computer, in an effort to prevent the files from being isolated and analyzed, and hence, would also mean being a whole lot harder to identify and remove. It is highly recommended that those who were infected by TrojanDownloader:Win32/Nemim.gen!A change all account passwords after the system has been cleaned up.
