Know Your Malware: Oxtic Removal


Oxtic is a trojan designed to take annoying, but not very dangerous actions on the compromised system. The parasite can shutdown a computer, blay beeping sounds using the PC speaker, swap mouse buttons or launch several instances of one program. Oxtic disables essential Windows system tools including the Task Manager and the Registry Editor. The trojan is loaded every time an executable file is run.
