Brief Description 

    

Breplibot.R is a backdoor that opens a port in order to connect to an IRC server and receive control commands, which allow the affected computer to be remotely administrated.

This worm makes a call to the netsh command in order to gain access to the Internet bypassing the firewall that is installed on the affected computer.

Breplibot.R does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer.

However, it has been reported that Breplibot.R reaches the computer as an attachment in an email message containing an article that deals with a supposed oil fraud headed by George W. Bush and Tony Blair.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Breplibot.R is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.

However, it has been reported that Breplibot.R reaches the computer as an attachment in an email message containing an article that deals with a supposed oil fraud headed by George W. Bush and Tony Blair.
