 When did this become a popular funtion of malware (if it even is)?

 

Are there any examples?

 

EDIT : Title should say CAN it do it, not does it..

Hello there!

Malware can do anything. All depends if it want it or not.
Remember that malware is a program like any other program in your computer. The difference it's just it is a malicious program.

You have useful programs to deleted unused files/folders and etc. If the malware coder think it's necessary to do so, he will do it.

 

I don't have any examples, but I think it's not necessary. Anyway if I find something I post it here.

 

Regards.
