Trojan.Saiterec.A Description

Trojan.Saiterec.A is a Trojan that was first detected in 2009. Although old by the standards of malware, Trojan:Win32/Saiterec.A can still be a threat to modern PCs, and malware researchers especially note the possibility of PC threat installations, theft of personal information or disabled security software during the course of a Trojan:Win32/Saiterec.A infection. Also, identified by aliases that include Trojan:Win32/Saiterec.A, Artemis!9279F5655E63, DLOADER.Trojan, Trojan.Win32.Agent2.bmc and W32/Renos.CNU, Trojan.Saiterec.A should always be considered a danger to your PC to be deleted as soon as possible. As usual, using security software that's designed to remove Trojan.Saiterec.A is suggested, especially since Trojan.Saiterec.A is likely to be partnered with other forms malicious programs.

What an Old Trojan from 2009 Can Still Do to Your PC

While Trojan.Saiterec.A is far from a brand-new Trojan, the attacks that Trojan.Saiterec.A uses are well in line with the arsenals that modern PC threats have been known to use. Most anti-malware programs identify Trojan.Saiterec.A as a generic Trojan or a Trojan downloader, and Trojan.Saiterec.A's ability to download and install other PC threats should be considered the foremost reason for hastening the process of deleting Trojan.Saiterec.A appropriately. malware experts have also found that Trojan.Saiterec.A, typical for a Trojan, uses an automatic startup exploit that allows Trojan.Saiterec.A to launch and conduct attacks without your permission or symptom displays. Without anti-malware software to trigger warnings or the installation of exceptionally obvious PC threats (such as adware or rogue security programs), you may be unable to tell if Trojan.Saiterec.A is on your computer at all.

Although plain side effects from Trojan.Saiterec.A may be scarce, you may be able to detect Trojan.Saiterec.A by watching for changes like the following:

  • The presence of unusual files on your hard drive, potentially including additions to your system folder.
  • Changes to the Registry and other system components.
  • Reduced security settings, such as changes to your web browser or firewall.
  • Unusual memory usage from various processes. You can monitor memory usage via Windows Task Manager and similar utilities (although malware experts also note that Trojan.Saiterec.A may block some of these programs as long as Trojan.Saiterec.A is open).

Booting Trojan.Saiterec.A Out of House and Home

Since Trojan.Saiterec.A keeps itself running-in-memory without your permission (and without obvious indicators of being on your PC), malware analysts suggest that you scan your computer any time you need to detect or delete Trojan.Saiterec.A safely. Excessive delay in doing this may allow other PC threats to attack your machine, and can be a source of loss of personal information, account hijacks, browser redirects, crashes and blocked program access. If Trojan.Saiterec.A attempts to block the software that you're using to scan your PC, you can:

  • Boot Windows from Safe Mode, which can be accessed from the advanced boot menu. Tapping F8 during a reboot will bring up the relevant menu; if you require Internet connectivity, it's recommended that you use 'Safe Mode with Networking.'
  • Boot your PC from a remote or removable media-based source (such as a local network or removable USB drive). This will avoid triggering Trojan.Saiterec.A's startup technique in cases where Trojan.Saiterec.A is exploiting the local Registry.
