This malware family is well known for being tricky to detect and remove because of its file-less design after infection. They infect your PCs so malware perpetrators can perform click-fraud and install additional malware on your machines. 

A trojan is a type of malware that can’t spread on its own. It relies on you to run them on your PC by mistake, or visit a hacked or malicious webpage.

They can steal your personal information, download more malware, or give a malicious hacker access to your PC.
