Created via a Trojan-building toolkit, Trojan.Zbot Activity 15 works as a backdoor Trojan Horse, specifically designed to steal sensitive data from its victim.
How Does Trojan.Zbot Activity 15 Work?
Once it infects your computer, Trojan.Zbot Activity 15 acts like a backdoor for hackers to enter your system without permission.

Trojan.Zbot Activity 15 is capable of sending infected emails to your contacts who, if open the emails’ attachments or links, will get infected with Trojan.Zbot Activity 15 as well.

How Does Trojan.Zbot Activity 15 Infiltrate Your PC?
Trojan.Zbot Activity 15 is distributed just like any other Trojan – via spam emails and instant messenger apps containing appealing links and attachments. The problem is that sometimes the email body may contain a warning or an alert message about your finances, software you use, an online account, etc., and it may be hard to recognize if the email is a scam.
Peer-to-peer files, which have been infected, are another way to infiltrate Trojan.Zbot Activity 15 in your system.
And, if you visit a corrupted website containing the Trojan, you can also become a victim.
In order to protect your system from Trojan.Zbot Activity 15 and practically any other malware, you should always be cautious what kind of files, emails and links you open. Anything with unclear or unknown subject, sender or origin should be skipped.
