Banker.BSX is a password stealer type Trojan that opens the port 1106 and monitors if the user accesses websites belonging to certain banking entities in Spanish speaking countries, in order to obtain passwords.
Banker.BSX captures the actions carried out by the user in the website, including the login and password typed by virtual keyboards.
Then, it sends the data it has gathered to a certain email address.
Banker.BSX is downloaded to the affected computer by other Trojan, called Nabload.U, which is distributed via MSN Messenger.
Banker.BSX is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
