Malicious Trojan pretends to be good
October 8, 2004
Symantec warns computer users about a new Trojan horse that can terminate unwanted adware on a person's computer, but also deletes files and tries to download code from remote websites.
Downloader.Lunii affects computers running Windows 2000, 95, 98, Me, NT and XP, the Cupertino, Calif.-based, security vendor said. The malware was discovered this week and is rated as a low risk.
Trojan horses, often referred to as spyware, run in the background unbeknownst to the PC user. The malicious code often uses infected machines to send spam or launch denial-of-service attacks.
Adware, also called spyware, typically displays targeted ads based on words searched for on the Web or derived from the PC user's surfing habits that have been periodically sent in the background to a spyware's Web server.
