Brief Description 

    
Sdbot.LGJ is a worm with that has backdoor characteristics. Sdbot.LGJ spreads by copying itself, without infecting other files. Its main objective is to collapse computers and networks, thus preventing users from working on their computers.
Furthermore, due to its backdoor characteristics, Sdbot.LGJ allows hackers to gain remote access to the affected computer. Therefore, hackers will be able to carry out actions that compromise user confidentiality and impede the tasks carried out on the computer.

 

It captures certain information entered or saved by the user, with the corresponding threat to privacy: passwords saved by certain Windows services.

 

It reduces the security level of the computer: it listens on open ports in order to control the computer remotely.

 

Sdbot.LGJ 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.
