Microsoft has recently released its Malicious Software Removal Tool version 5.4 for September 2013, with the ability to detect and remove Simda Trojan. “Simda is a multi-component malware family that includes trojan, backdoor, password-stealing, downloader and file-infector variants. It is very rare for a single malware family to possess all of these characteristics “ noted in Microsoft Malware protection Center blog.
Simda has been evolved from password-stealing trojan to a banking Trojan, as it has targeted banks in Russia and Europe. Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool 5.4 detects the DLL injected into Windows Processes by banking trojan as PWS:Win32/Simda.a.
Apart from MSRT, other Microsoft security products such as Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows, Windows Defender on Windows 8 and Microsoft Safety Scanner also have got Simda trojan detection and cleaning capabilities.
Microsoft recommends to run their anti-malware tool regularly even though computer your is virus-free.
