Banker.CSC is a password stealer type Trojan that monitors if the user accesses websites belonging to certain banking entities, in order to obtain passwords. Then, it sends the data it has gathered to its author.
Banker.CSC does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer. The means of transmission used include, among others, floppy disks, CD-ROMs, email messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.
Banker.CSC is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
