Brief Description 

    

BankoLimb.BW is a Trojan that is designed to steal users' banking data related to a certain British banking entity. In order to do so, it has a list of URLs belonging to that banking entity.

When they access any website that coincides with any of the list, the Trojan will be activated and add more fields to be filled in.

All the information entered in that website will be logged by the Trojan and sent to a certain website.

BankoLimb.BW 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.

Visible Symptoms 

    

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