Backdoor.Beksnoc.A is a malicious Trojan with backdoor capabilities. It was first released on 7 July, 2011, and has the ability to open security holes in the infected system so as to allow other malicious malware easier access to the system. Many of the top security companies classify Backdoor.Beksnoc.A as a severe threat.
Once Backdoor.Beksnoc.A enters the system and roots itself, it will provide unrestricted access of the system to its developers. The only restrictions will be the restrictions of the logged on user if he does not have administrative privileges. Backdoor.Beksnoc.A’s developers will then be able to use the user’s system for their own nefarious means.
These may include using the system as part of massive spam bot attacks, as well as Denial of Service (DoS) attacks and other similar criminal activities. All of this will be done without the user’s knowledge. The developers of this Trojan will also have access to all of the user’s personal information, which includes his usernames, passwords and other sensitive financial information.
Because of Backdoor.Beksnoc.A’s sly infiltration of the system, and the fact that it will perform all of its activities in the background, there are no obvious symptoms that will alert the user as to the presence of Backdoor.Beksnoc.A on the system. The only notification the user will receive will come from installed security software. This may make it even more difficult for the user to detect and remove Backdoor.Beksnoc.A from the system without some help.
Backdoor.Beksnoc.A will install a dropper Trojan which will install a proxy used to relay spam or a keylogger to the system to monitor the user’s keystrokes and relay this info to its developers. It will also open ports of the infected PC in order to make it even more vulnerable to further compromise by other threats.
In order to restore your PC’s security and to limit the damage this malicious Trojan will be able to cause, destroy Backdoor.Beksnoc.A with the help of a powerful security tool. This will not only erase Backdoor.Beksnoc.A for good, but the application will offer adequate protection against similar threats in future.
