Infostealer.Banload – How Did I Get It?

There are a number of ways you could get infected with the “Infostealer.Banload” Trojan horse. One of the most common distribution methods is reported to be through email attachments. Another common way is to execute the malicious program manually, being tricked that it is some useful program. Thus, without realizing, you are getting the Stealer Trojan inserted into your system.

You might have been infected with the Trojan from a targeted attack by downloading an attachment from a spam email. Files that can be used to spread various threats such as the Infostealer.Banload, more often than not, have these extensions: .bat, .exe, .vbs, .pif, .scr and other executable ones. You could also get infected via some plugin, extension, popup banner, or a site with malicious content on it.

Infostealer.Banload – More About It

The Infostealer.Banload is classified as a Password Stealer Trojan horse. It does just that. It opens a backdoor on a compromised computer system and aims to steal Usernames and Passwords.

The Trojan may create the following file, once executed:

→C:\ProgramData\nutray.exe

Also, the Trojan will create a registry entry for that same file:

→HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\”COM+” = “%SystemDrive%\ProgramData\nutray.exe”

After being nested into a compromised computer, and setting a process for loading with the Start-up of Windows via the above registry entry, the Trojan will open the back door. That will lead to one or both of these remote locations:

•smartcell.webcindario.com/acess
•marmitariakisabor.com/oficial/acess

After the backdoor has access to the infected machine, it can execute certain actions such as downloading potentially malicious files, modifying different settings and sending sensitive information from browser pages with banking-related strings on them, such as account names and passwords. The Trojan may also log keystrokes to record the particular order of keys you press, so it may steal passwords this way along with other data.

This proves that the Infostealer.Banload Trojan has dangerous capabilities, including a two-way backdoor to remote locations selected by the malware creator, who can steal very sensitive and personal information from the targeted system.
