Brief Description 

    

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

 

Gagar.P accesses several websites to download files, which it then runs. These can be any type of file, although they are normally malware.

 

It uses several methods in order to avoid detection by antivirus companies:

  • Its code is encrypted and it is only decrypted when it is going to run. Because of this, its code is not legible through a memory dump.

 

Gagar.P 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.
