TrojanDownloader:PowerShell/Falsip.A is a detection of a Trojan Horse[1] by Microsoft Windows Defender. Programs with Trojan-like features are capable of multiple malicious activities. Likewise, there is no accurate information to confirm which one of them this computer hazard performs.

PowerShell/Falsip.A virus appears in the form of PowerShell scripts which are designed to download numerous malicious programs on your system. Typically, these codes hide their presence or mimic legitimate PC processes to confuse the user and protect themselves against elimination.

Although, you should be cautious that PowerShell/Falsip.A might also perform the following activity:

  • Track your keystrokes and steal sensitive information;
  • Send private data to remote servers which are controlled by hackers;
  • Allow the criminal to access your computer remotely;
  • Deliver intrusive pop-ups promoting fake software updates;
  • Increasing the amount of malware-laden ads;
  • Redirect the users to shady websites and increase the risk of getting infected with malware.
Usually, PowerShell/Falsip.A Trojan Downloader can enter your system via the attachments of spam emails or be infiltrated by another malware which is present on your computer. Note that people who are not experienced enough in the IT field should not try to uninstall the Trojan by themselves.

TrojanDownloader:PowerShell/Falsip.A removal is not only complicated for a regular computer user, but also highly dangerous. You might be tricked to disrupt or terminate legitimate system processes which can look similar to the obfuscate Trojan Horse.

Thus, remove TrojanDownloader:PowerShell/Falsip.A only with the help of a robust security software. We recommend using Reimage to make additional scans and safely locate all trojan-related files to uninstall them from your computer. NoVirus.uk[2] team says that using multiple security tools can help you to protect your system in this case.

Trojan program can be sent to you via malicious email

Similarly to ransomware distribution, Trojan Horses spread inside the attachments of spam emails as well. Criminals use deceptive techniques to trick people into believing that the letter is legitimate and important. It can appear as an invoice from a well-known company or even a security alert from Apple or Microsoft[3].

Despite the fact, that such spam emails look incredibly convincing, you should never open or click on them. Remember that the message urges you to click on the attachment for further details and this is indicates that the letter might be malicious. Therefore, closely monitor your online activity to protect your system.

Additionally, people who tend to download software cracks or programs illegally risk to infect their computers with Trojan Horses as well. It is because criminals take advantage of unprotected peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing sites to trick people into downloading malicious programs manually.
