Brief Description 

    

BanKFake.E is a password stealer type Trojan that obtains affected users' access data to a certain banking entity.

In order to do so, it displays an interface that simulates being the website of a bank, where the users' access data is requested.

Then, the gathered information is sent to a certain email address.

BanKFake.E reaches the computer in a file that has the icon of Internet Explorer, as if it were a shortcut to a website. However, it does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer.

Visible Symptoms 

    

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