Vxidl.B is the newest Trojan Downloader to be causing havoc on the internet community of late.
Vxidl.B is further identified as a Browser Helper Object.
Now, what is a Browser Helper object (BHO) you may wonder?
Well, A BHO, or browser helper object, is a component of Microsoft\'s Internet Explorer Web browser application. It is an add-in designed to provide or expand the functionality of the browser and allow developers to improve the Web browser with new features, as time goes by.
So, why are BHO\'s considered bad?
BHO\'s, in and of themselves, are not bad. But, like a lot of other features and functionality, if the BHO can be used to install additional features or functions that are useful, it can also be exploited to install features or functions that are malicious.
Some applications, such as the Google or Yahoo toolbars, are examples of good BHO\'s. But, there are also many examples of BHO\'s which are used to hijack your Web browser home page, spy on your Internet activities and other malicious actions.
