Rootkit.Agent.NIZ

Rootkit.Agent.NIZ in not your typical infection. Rootkit.Agent.NIZ is another Trojan infection, designed to compromise your computer system. Rootkit.Agent.NIZ enters into a system via browser security exploits.

Rootkit.Agent.NIZ is referred to by a variety of names:
- R/Drop.Rootkit.A.2
- Trojan.Rootkit.Agent.Eq
- Rootkit.Agent.CL
- Rootkit.Win32.Agent.eq
- W32/Agent.EQ!tr.rkit
- Win32/Rootkit.Agent.EQ
- W32/Rootkit.AAY
- Trojan.Win32.Rootkit.Agent.EQ

This type of infection will only be the cause of more and more pop-up messages - as it further compromises the integrity of any PC system it has entered.

Rootkit.Agent.NIZ will covertly install itself onto a system, and will attach itself to the registry of the infiltrated system, where it will then build a backdoor, allowing for the entrance of additional malware, and allowing a remote attacker to infiltrate the computer system, at any given time.

Rootkit.Agent.NIZ will also apply Rootkit tactics, in order to remain hidden from the infiltrated computer systems’ user, anti-virus and anti-spyware programs.
As is typical of Trojan infections, Rootkit.Agent.NIZ installs itself covertly onto a computer system, usually via the downloading of email attachments, which could be in any of the following formats: .avi, .pif, .exe, .jpg.

It is important to make note of the methods employed by Rootkit.Agent.NIZ to enter into a computer system:

1. Via unexpected email attachment, therefore one should never open up unexpected email attachments, instead check with the sender first, to ensure that the attachment is legitimate.
2. Via Browser security exploits, which one may come across while surfing the web.
3. Via Instant Messenger applications. If an effective firewall is not in place on the computer system, spyware may be capable of attaching itself to any files shared with the instant messenger.

Rootkit.Agent.NIZ is a complex form of Trojan infection, in the fact that it is capable of recreating, repairing and updating itself within an infected computer system, all as a ploy to remain undetected by the systems security applications. Should Rootkit.Agent.NIZ alter, restore or update it files, DLLs, registry keys and processes, a system scanner may be capable of removing certain components associated with Rootkit.Agent.NIZ, but chances are the Trojan will begin procedures to repair and update itself. The best thing to do would be to manually remove this infection as soon as possible.
