Cantix.A Description

Cantix.A is a compute worm that may be installed through malicious application bundles, files loaded from a removable drive, or through a network where a system connected is infected with Cantix.A. Computer users may mistake the Cantix.A infection as various unknown shortcuts setup throughout their desktop or system. The creation of several shortcut file names after an existing directory on the infected PC’s hard drive is usually a location of many files affected by Cantix.A. Loading of any files or shortcuts related to Cantix.A may initialize the Cantix.A threat and later start to spread onto other computers that may be connected to the same network or share network drives and devices.

It is extremely important to utilize an antimalware resource to detect and eliminate Cantix.A safely along with any of its related files. If not removed, Cantix.A may propagate to other computers through a connected network.
