Amazon Virus – How Does It Work?

As previously mentioned, this believed-to-be Trojan horse may enter the computer via emails. Some reports claim to see emails with content, such as ‘Recover your password’ or ‘Set up recovery options’. But a technique, called email spoofing is also an option for the cyber-criminals, especially if an attack is targeted. Spoofing changes the real email address of the attacker, masking it with an address familiar to the user (such as for your boss`s email, for example). This technique makes the sender trustworthy.

When it has been activated on the computer, this application may begin to create files of different formats on the machine (.exe,.ini,.dll) concealed deep in Windows directories. It may even modify some keys and values in the Windows Registry. This is done with the purpose of concealing its files by automatically accepting some permission requests for updates or changes in some security settings. Such updates might change the encryption of its files, for example, hiding it from antivirus programs for extended periods of time.

This virus is also believed to situate different files on the computer likely with following purposes:

→-Copying files from PCs
-Transferring financial information to foreign locations.
-Obtaining personal information about the user.
-Tracking and recording user browsing activity and typed keys.
-Making the user PC part of a ‘zombie’ network that serves in its attackers’ interests.
-Deleting or corrupting user files.

Usually viruses, such as the Amazon Virus are automated and pre-programmed in regards to what exactly they may do to the PC when they conduct massive attacks over the web. However, there are also targeted attacks that are directed to local area networks (LAN`s) in an organization or individual PCs that may be programmed to do custom actions in the systems they infect.
