Brief Description 

    

Hupigon.LBS is a backdoor that allows hackers to gain remote access to the affected computer in order to carry out actions that compromise user confidentiality and impede the tasks performed on the computer.

 

It captures certain information entered or saved by the user, with the corresponding threat to privacy: keystrokes, in order to obtain information for accessing online banking services, passwords and other confidential information.

 

It reduces the security level of the computer: it listens on open ports in order to control the computer remotely; it changes system permissions, decreasing the security level.

 

It uses stealth techniques to avoid being detected by the user:

  • It deletes the original file from which it was run once it is installed on the computer.

 

Hupigon.LBS 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.
