This is to get, at least in part, away from a new NanoCore Trojan (computer virus) distributed free of charge and which allows you to spy , without too much effort, any Windows PC .
Researchers have discovered a new strain of the ‘NanoCore’ remote access trojan (RAT) that could give hackers (even the most amateur) complete control of the PC.

“ Once downloaded from the Dark Web, the NanoCore RAT is controllable via a very simple graphical interface. This allows even the most amateur hackers to create phishing campaigns looking for potential computers to be infected , ”said security experts from Lmntrix Labs.
Much like most hacker attacks, the most common method of distribution is via phishing emails that typically contain fake order invoice documents or requests to re-enter your login credentials. Bank account.
