I’m sure a lot of us here have used iFunbox, iManager, and iExplorer before. These are some of the most popular file managers for iPhone and iPad.
They allow users to manage their iOS device without the help of iTunes. As you may know, iTunes can sometimes be bloated. Tools like iFunbox provide a better app and file management solution. Furthermore, it lets you do things that iTunes restrict its users from doing.
A few examples:
- Install .iPA package
- Import and export files
- Control your native file system
Recently, a lot of technology sites from Asia were talking about a new utility called 3uTools. Similar to iFunbox and iExplorer, this one also lets you manage the files on your iOS device.
Moreover, it also has “one-click jailbreak,” entering & exiting DFU mode, SHSH backup and additional jailbreak-related features that other software don’t have.
Trojan detected in 3uTools
After the reading these reviews, I decided to give it a try. The first two days went by very well. I didn’t experience any problem.
But earlier today I opened 3uTools, and this message came up:
3uTools.exe – System Error
The program can’t start because idm_jb.dll missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
At first, I thought this was just a regular problem. But then a few minutes later, another popup appear. This time it’s from Windows Defender reporting that it has found a trojan inside 3uTools.
This is a bit odd. I did some research and saw several reports via users from Asian countries (this is through forums).
I haven’t figure out a fix for this yet, but until then, I suggest you remove 3uTools and use a more reliable software like the one we mentioned above.
