Backdoor.Pontoeb

Backdoor.Ponteob is a type of a Trojan that opens a security loophole in your system and allows other malicious programs to enter your computer, or allows a remote server to control the infected system. There are quite a few versions of this backdoor and their distribution might differ, but usually, they get spread around the internet by the following file names: Need.For.Speed.The.Run.Unlocked-TF.exe and Dota 2 Betakeys.txt.exe. Obviously, the fraud begins from the very distribution of Backdoor.Ponteob, because the backdoor tries to be taken for a component of a popular game.

Once Backdoor.Ponteob enters and installs itself in your system, it adds keys into the Register which allows the backdoor to load automatically whenever you turn on your computer. Thus Backdoor.Ponteob is always running in the background of your system. It bypasses Windows firewall and connects to a remote server in order to allow a hacker to remotely access your computer. Then your system can be forcefully connected to a specific website in order to download more malware, for example. Also, Backdoor.Ponteob can easily collect such information as your disk drive serial number, system drive details, processor architecture and send it away to the hacker. On top of that, the backdoor constantly updates itself to stay on track with the latest security upgrades and avoid being detected by security products.

If you are infected by Backdoor.Ponteob your computer should be running a lot slower than usual, and that is the first sign of the infection. You might also experiences sudden errors when you try to open system files and various start up applications. If you think that something is wrong, you can always check your Windows Task Manager for process files related to Backdoor.Ponteob. The presence of such processes as wtsx.exe or mkqiq.exe is the best evidence of the infection (check the full list of processes related to Backdoor.Ponteob below the description).

Either way, if you are infected with this backdoor, you have to remove Backdoor.Ponteob from your computer without further ado. Allowing this backdoor to stay in your system might cause detrimental damage. If you are not sure of your computing skills acquire a legitimate security application that will terminate Backdoor.Ponteob automatically for you.
