What Malware.Banc.A will do is load up with Internet Explorer, as a Browser Helper Object (BHO). This means that Malware.Banc.A is a dynamic link library (DLL) that tends to run as soon as Internet Explorer is started.
Although this type of program is not always malicious, it has been known to perform suspicious activity such as monitoring the user’s internet behavior, forwarding that along (with information regarding the other programs on the infected computer) to third-party sources.
BHO’s are usually installed covertly onto an unsuspecting computer system, so as to ensure the secretive gathering of information from the infected computer to a remote controller; therefore Malware.Banc.A is considered malware, as it enters into a system usually without the user\'s knowledge or consent.
Once the Malware.Banc.A program is installed it may start to display very intrusive pop-up messages and advertisements.
The pop-up messages may take up all of the available workspace on a users screen, rendering the computer useless for several moments.
