Jun. 17, 2005 03:15 PM
A report by Panda Software released today looks at three examples of malware, the Trojan Downloader.DCM, the backdoor Trojan Dumador.BC, and the hacking tool Looxee.
Dumador.BC, the file downloaded by the downloader, is a backdoor Trojan that cannot spread by itself. Its function is to allow remote control of the affected computer by opening TCP ports in the computer and receiving remote run command requests. It also logs different user details and modifies the system hosts file to prevent the computer from accessing the websites belonging to antivirus companies.
Looxee is a hacking tool that monitors and logs different activities carried out by the user of the affected computer, such as the email messages sent and received, chats via instant messaging, websites visited and it even captures screenshots, among other actions. Curiously, it has a characteristic that warns the user, if a certain keyword is entered. This tool is not dangerous as such, but can be used for malicious purposes.
