  • Our researchers got to know about new spyware which is known as Dtrack and that creates ridiculous situations for us by downloading files directly to your system.
  • You don’t know about the files but still, it works. They also conducted some other actions of the Malware Remote Administration Tool.
  • Victims are in serious trouble as such Dtrack can be helpful for the hackers to perform their roles like uploading files, downloading files, executing many processes and much more.

Kaspersky informed to everyone and also said this newly malware device or software is active and can be too dangerous for every user.
