What is Cod?

Cod is classified as a hazardous Trojan horse which is able to cause system troubles once it has installed on the computer. This malicious Trojan virus will get installed when PC user is surfing the internet without high security defense. Usually, this kind of threat hides in insecure sites or applications. The access of insecure sites or download of infected applications will make the computer be attacked by this virus. It is reported that this Trojan virus has attacked numerous computers by making use of freeware, shareware and free games app. Unfortunately, this infection always enters the targeted computer successfully without being noticed. After its attack, it can cause system vulnerability via destroying security defense and disabling firewall. As soon as the system security is broken down, a lot of third party processes will take this chance and invade the infected computer aggressively.

Cod infiltrates itself into the infected computer without user's consent, permission or approval. This is, of course, quite typical to many other similar rogues. The program gets started together with each system launching. Such unauthorized startup is surely annoying, plus the very presence of this malware slows down your computer considerably.

Cod with each startup runs the fake scan of your system in order to report many bogus threats supposedly revealed by it. These problems aren't real.

The malware has in mind to bring users to the point where they will be asked by the hoax to buy the fake and helpless so-called licensed version of this rogue, but it will never help users to defend their computers from virus aggression. Hence, as we've mentioned already, Cod is a useless tool that isn't worth buying.
