Brief Description 

    

Asprox.A is a Trojan designed to make the affected computer become a proxy server. This would allow it to carry out malicious actions from the affected computer, using the IP address of the affected user.

This way, Asprox.A could obtain information from the computer and send it to its creator without being discovered, as the IP address from which the data is sent belongs to the affected user.

Asprox.A does not spread automatically by its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer.

Visible Symptoms 

    

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