How to remove Numando Trojan (Virus Removal Guide)

This guide teaches you how to remove Numando Trojan for free by following easy step-by-step instructions.

Numando Trojan is a computer virus that attempts to steal confidential information from the compromised computer.

The Trojan itself is primarily distributed through spam campaigns and drive-by downloads, though given its versatility, other vectors may also be utilized. The victims may receive an email message purporting to be from organizations such as the FDIC, IRS, Facebook, or Microsoft. The message body warns the user of a problem with their financial information, online account, or software and suggests they visit a link provided in the email.

The Numando Trojan has primarily been designed to steal confidential information from the computers it compromises. It specifically targets system information, online credentials, and banking details, but can be customized through the toolkit to gather any sort of information. This is done by tailoring configuration files that are compiled into the Trojan installer by the attacker. These can later be updated to target other information if the attacker so wishes.

Files reported as Numando Trojan may not necessarily be malicious. Should you be uncertain as to whether a file is malicious or a false positive detection, you can submit the affected file to https://www.virustotal.com/en/ to be scanned with multiple antivirus engines.
