TROJ_DLOADR.BGV is a Trojan downloader that installs spyware from the Zbot or Zeus family. Although these PC threats are high-level threats that are notorious for their attacks against bank accounts, TROJ_DLOADR.BGV hasn’t been found to show obvious symptoms for its attacks, and you should preferably use anti-malware software whenever you have a need to detect or remove TROJ_DLOADR.BGV from your computer. Recent TROJ_DLOADR.BGV-based attacks have been found to be based on a copycat site for the UEFA (or Union of European Football Associations). Paying attention to web addresses for potential copycat sites, as well as using strong browser security, are both recommended by SpywareRemove.com malware experts as defenses against TROJ_DLOADR.BGV, which may be installed without your consent.
TROJ_DLOADR.BGV: From Soccer to Socking It to Your Computer
TROJ_DLOADR.BGV may be distributed by other methods, but at the time of this writing, its preferred infection route is via a fake soccer/football website. This site, [censored]uro2012.com, imitates the UEFA’s official website format, but the content is based on malicious advertisements and fake surveys. Coincidentally, this same site also distributes Security Shield, a member of the WinWebSec family of scamware, as well as TROJ_DLOADR.BGV, which has no purpose except to install a third PC threat, the Zeus Trojan-based spyware TSPY_ZBOT.JMO.
As is the case with most Trojan downloaders, you shouldn’t expect TROJ_DLOADR.BGV to show symptoms of its downloads. SpywareRemove.com malware analysts recommend that any disinfection method for TROJ_DLOADR.BGV’s TSPY_ZBOT.JMO also be thorough enough to remove TROJ_DLOADR.BGV, or TROJ_DLOADR.BGV may simply re-download and re-install this PC threat. TSPY_ZBOT.JMO and, correspondingly, TROJ_DLOADR.BGV should be considered high-level threats to your computer’s safety and privacy at all times.
