Brief Description 

    

Qhost.HU is a Trojan that steals confidential information about certain banking entities, redirecting users that visit them to a malicious website that imitates the original one, so that the users enter their banking data.

Qhost.HU reaches the computer in a file with the icon of Windows Media Player, passing itself off as a video of a journalist who recorded a video before his death. However, it does not spread automatically by its own means.

Visible Symptoms 

    

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