Brief Description 

    

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

 

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.

 

Lineage.IWG 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.
  • Computer networks (mapped drives): it creates copies of itself in mapped drives.
  • Computer networks (shared resources): it creates copies of itself in shared network resources to which it has access.
