As of early May, 2018 many antivirus programs have noticed a new, active JackServn trojan family variant roaming around the virtual world. It is believed that the initial release of JackServn trojan was around 2015, followed by many other versions, with the current trojan.jackservn amongst them.
JackServn trojan gets really dangerous once it sneaks into your computer
JackServn is a true multitasking threat when it comes to malicious activities. This one trojan can do more than several separate ransomware, adware, PUP or browser hijacker viruses ever will. The malicious activity starts with a cunning intrusion into victims computer via spam email attachments, infected USB and external hard drives, music, video, torrent files from non-authorized websites, intrusive ads, also with the help of worms and etc. The name ‘Trojan.jackservn’ itself explains the technique of invasion – the misleading exterior of true intent, aka pretending to be a harmless so that anti-malware programs would not be able to detect the threat.
After victim’s computer is infected by JackServn trojan, it makes his way to the registry and injects harmful codes that corrupt the files, therefore the infectious agent will be ‘woken up’ automatically every time you restart your system. Secondly it tries to corrupt the files of any existing antivirus software and firewall so your Windows OS won’t notice further JackServn trojan’s suspicious activities. JackServn settles in and modifies the system so it could work with a full potential.
Mischievous JackServn easily spreads to your browser to cause constant redirects to untrustworthy product ads, search engines, noxious websites with other malware and other places. Not only does it benefit from advertising, but also by gathering sensitive personal data, login information which later can be used to hack the bank accounts or ask for ransom to avoid data breach.
Sadly JackServn trojan does’t stop there. Once the virus is in, it will open the doors for hackers to remotely access your IT machine without any permission or notice. Your privacy gets in danger knowing that anytime you can be watched by the cyber crooks. Through such vulnerable connection more malicious malware can get installed infecting your system completely. This infection can get so hazardous that after a while your computer can crash down and loose the files permanently. Knowing the current malware situation in the cyber world, there are some threats that can affect users’ computer remotely even on a hardware level and you definitely don’t want JackServn to ‘put a red carpet’ for them to enter your system.
