Brief Description 

    

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

 

Downloader.PCS is designed to affect one or more specific companies.

 

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

 

Downloader.PCS 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.
  • Via Internet, exploiting remote vulnerabilities: attacking random IP addresses, in which it tries to insert a copy of itself by exploiting one or more vulnerabilities.
