trojan is a term used to describe a type of malware designed to harm computer systems. Trojans are not self-replicating. Some trojans are capable of autonomous penetration through computer protection systems aiming to invade and infect the system. Usually trojans penetrate a system along with a virus or a worm in the result of careless behavior of the user or through an active attack attempt.

Trojan password stealers (Trojan-PSW) are trojans designed to steal passwords and other confidential data without using keystroke logging. Such trojans have means to extract passwords from the files used by applications to store them.

To disinfect a system compromised with malware belonging to the family Trojan-PSW.Win32.Kates (also known as W32/Daonol) use Kaspersky Lab anti-virus products installed on the PC. If you do not have a Kaspersky Lab product installed, we recommend to install a Kaspersky Lab application or use the utility Kabasigi.exe in order to remove malware belonging to the family Trojan-PSW.Win32.Kates.
