Wnuke4 is a Trojan used by hackers to remotely send large quantities of data to other computers in order to block them or interrupt its Internet connection. When the affected computer blocks, all unsaved data will be lost.
Wnuke4 can also intercept confidential data such as the passwords sent from affected computers.
Wnuke4 is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
However, if your computer blocks for no apparent reason or the Internet connection is interrupted, it can be a symptom of the presence of Wnuke4 in your computer.
