What is eula.rtf? Should I remove it?

Features of the Eula.rtf files

Eula.rtf files are not malicious by nature, but they can easily turn ugly if they end up in the hands of evil-minded malware developers. Eula.rtf name can be translated to End User License Agreement — a document that software developers append to their products as a way of granting users the right to use them. Typically such documents include additional chapters listing all the conditions under which the software can be used.

Name Eula.rtf
Type Application file
Main dangers Malicious program can use the name of legitimate file to hide itself on the system
Viruses that use Eula.rtf Kiwee, KeySpy
Elimination To check files and remove infected ones, use Reimage.

The fact that these files travel around with legitimate software is often exploited by the cybercriminals who embed these innocent-looking files with malicious scripts and enable fraudulent, unauthorized activities on the PC.

Kiwee, KeySpy are just a couple of examples of malware which use eula.rtf to infiltrate and operate on the computers. These are relatively harmless pests that may have some impact on the system’s performance, display commercial advertisements or perform other annoying actions.

Nevertheless, there are some really dangerous parasites, such as ransomware which may use eula.rtf to damage your system, encrypt your files, corrupt installed software and, eventually, violate your privacy.

The problem with these files is that they are protected by ownership rights and their removal is typically quite complicated. Luckily, you can change these ownership rights and successfully remove the program from your computer.

Malicious file sneaks in the system together with freeware

Freeware and shareware packages is the main vector of eula.rtf distribution. Often, software with malicious EULA files inside are distributed via poor reputation software sharing websites, peer-to-peer networks or other platforms which do not account for the trustworthiness of the content that their users choose to share
