Trojan.Betabot Description and Distribution

As already mentioned, the Trojan typically creates a backdoor and modifies the computer’s registry. Security researchers have reported that Betabot creates a covered instance of ‘iexplore.exe’ and then embeds a code into it. The Trojan then establishes a connection and opens a back door. The latter grants the cyber crooks full access and control over the affected computer. Then the Trojan terminates all open applications that have incorporated ‘explorer.exe’.
Moreover, Betabot is very likely to attempt to block users from visiting security websites. In addition, the Trojan disables the present anti-malware solution. To do so, the bot generates a fake Microsoft Windows message box titled ‘User Account Control’. The message asks the user to grant Windows Command Processor administrative control, claiming that it is approved by Windows. In case the change is accepted, the Trojan will steal the user’s log-in details for bank accounts.
Users should be alerted because the bot may enter their systems in several ways. The Most cases scenario is Trojan.Bot sneaked in via corrupted links. Another quite common distribution technique is through infected external memory devices.
