Backdoor.Wombot.A is a malicious computer program that makes it possible for outside attackers to enter your computer system. Backdoor.Wombot.A is a backdoor Trojan that needs to be removed immediately, because if it remains in the system it connects to a particular IRC server to receive instructions from its creator. Thus, Backdoor.Wombot.A can spread to other computers, stealing passwords and exploiting Windows vulnerabilities. It can also make use of a “backdoor” left by other members of the same malware family, because things like Backdoor.Wombot.A seldom come alone. Last but not least, Backdoor.Wombot.A can be instrumental in staging a DoS attack, so it is absolutely necessary to delete Backdoor.Wombot.A from your system right now.
The presence of Backdoor.Wombot.A can be indicated by qtwm.exe process file that can be found running in Windows Task Manager after the infection. This backdoor Trojan does not have an interface so looking for Trojan-related files is probably the only way to make sure whether you are infected or not. Upon the infiltration qtwm.exe is dropped at C:\windows\system32\ location, and the registry is edited in a way that allows the Trojan to load automatically with the system. The file qtwm.exe itself is classified as a fraudulent security program which means that with Backdoor.Wombot.A you are exposed to rogue antispyware attacks as well.
As if that weren’t enough, Backdoor.Wombot.A is dangerous enough on its own. Depending on what kind of instructions it receives from the hacker it can download and execute dangerous files and record sensitive data by the means of keylogging. As a result your privacy is breached and such data as banking logins and passwords can be leaked to a third party.
