Brief Description 

    

Banbra.BUW is a Trojan, which although seemingly inoffensive, can actually carry out attacks and intrusions.

 

It captures certain information entered or saved by the user, with the corresponding threat to privacy: keystrokes, in order to obtain information for accessing online banking services, passwords and other confidential information.

 

It reduces the security level of the computer: it notifies the attacker that the computer has been compromised and is ready to be used maliciously.

 

Banbra.BUW uses the following propagation or distribution methods:

  • Exploiting vulnerabilities with the intervention of the user: exploiting vulnerabilities in file formats or applications. To exploit them successfully it needs the intervention of the user: opening files, viewing malicious web pages, reading emails, etc.
  • It is dropped or downloaded to the computer by other malware specimens, for example: Nabload.BT.
