Rootkit

A rootkit is a set of programs used by a hacker to conceal unauthorized access to a computer. To bypass antivirus scans, a rootkit replaces Windows system files or libraries, or installs special software modules. The hacker installs the rootkit after obtaining user-level access, typically by cracking a user’s password or exploiting a vulnerability of the operating system. The rootkit proceeds to gather other user IDs stored on the computer until the hacker gains administrator access to the system.
Hackers commonly use rootkits as a technique for concealing trojan activity.

How Did My PC Get Infected with CDiskDun?^

The following are the most likely reasons why your computer got infected with CDiskDun:

  • Your operating system and Web browser's security settings are too lax.
  • You are not following safe Internet surfing and PC practices.

Downloading and Installing Freeware or Shareware

Small-charge or free software applications may come bundled with spyware, adware, or programs like CDiskDun. Sometimes adware is attached to free software to enable the developers to cover the overhead involved in created the software. Spyware frequently piggybacks on free software into your computer to damage it and steal valuable private information.

Using Peer-to-Peer Software

The use of peer-to-peer (P2P) programs or other applications using a shared network exposes your system to the risk of unwittingly downloading infected files, including malicious programs like CDiskDun.

Visiting Questionable Web Sites

When you visit sites with dubious or objectionable content, trojans-including CDiskDun, spyware and adware, may well be automatically downloaded and installed onto your computer.
