Know Your Malware: Mutech Removal


Mutech is a trojan designed to drop other malware on the compromised computer. Once executed, the parasite installs itself to the system and contacts a predetermined web server in order to download certain parasites. Once pests are downloaded, Mutech installs them to the system. It also injects malicious code into active processes in attempt to hide parasites from the user. Mutech runs as a service on every Windows startup.
