Backdoor.Farfli.G is a form of a backdoor Trojan infection, designed to display false and exaggerated results, as a means to coerce a user into purchasing the full version of rogue antispyware software.
As a backdoor Trojan, Backdoor.Farfli.G provides remote access to the affected computer systems. Backdoor.Farfli.G may be used to conduct distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, or it may be used to install additional Trojan infections or other forms of malicious software.
For example, Backdoor.Farfli.G may be used to install a downloader or dropper Trojan, which may in turn install a proxy Trojan used to relay spam or a Keylogger Trojan, which in turn monitors and sends keystrokes to a remote attacker.
Backdoor.Farfli.G may also open ports on the affected system and thus may potentially lead to further compromising of the ifnected system by other attackers.
Backdoor.Farfli.G is installed under deceptive pretences, infiltrating the user’s PC without their approval or knowledge. Backdoor.Farfli.G is advertised through the use of advertisements that pretend to be online scanners.
It has been shown that by just having Backdoor.Farfli.G running on a computer will make said computer slower and run less efficiently.
Backdoor.Farfli.G is particularly damaging to a computer system, once it has fully embed itself within the PC’s system, therefore it is given a high priority security risk status by many computer analysts.
The best thing to do when faced with the Backdoor.Farfli.G infection would be to employ the services of a fully functional and up-to-date anti-spyware tool, to rid the infected system of all nefarious activity.
