Trojan Win32 Agent Azsy – Dangerous Trojan Or Just a Hoax?2 min read
You’ve seen the critical spyware alerts popup on your computer claiming that you are infected with Trojan.Win32.Agent.Azsy and that you need to install some sort of removal software (most likely called Personal Antivirus) in order to clean it – but are you really infected and do you really need security software? The answer might surprise you.
While the critical alert message is bogus, you are already infected with Rogue Antispyware – again most likely Personal Antivirus – that tries to trick you into purchasing fake security software.
Trojan.win32.agent.azsy is nothing more than a made up spyware infection name meant to scare you into believing that you are infected. The irony is that you really are infected, but the software advertised by the popup is actually spyware itself and is what you are infected with and will do nothing more than install additional spyware and malware onto your computer all while trying to convince you to purchase the bogus security software in order to clean your computer.
It is extremely important that you take the proper steps to remove this rogue antispyware software from your computer because in addition to slowing your computer down and continually installing new malware onto your computer, it has the ability to log keystrokes, steal private and sensitive information and then transfer that data to the hacker on the back end waiting for it who then uses it to steal your credit card info, access your bank accounts, and even steal your identity.
I can tell you from personal experience that manual removal of these types of rogue programs, especially if it is Personal Antivirus, is futile. I know because I tried on a friend’s computer – for hours without any luck and I work on computers for a living.
Instead I simply downloaded and installed what is widely considered to be the most advanced spyware removal and protection tool on the market and within minutes I was rid of the annoying popups and more importantly I was rid of the rogue spyware infection – which in this case was in fact Personal Antivirus.
So if you are seeing popups on your computer claiming that you are infected with Trojan.win32.agent.azsy, even though the popup itself is bogus you are already infected and are going to need an advanced spyware removal tool to get your computer back to being popup free.
