Brief Description 

    

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

 

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

It sends the gathered information to a remote user by any available means: email, FTP, etc.

 

It affects productivity, preventing tasks from being carried out:

  • In the affected computer: it converts the computer into a platform for taking malicious action surreptitiously: spam sending, launch of Denial of Service attacks, malware distribution, etc.

 

It reduces the security level of the computer: it changes the security settings of Internet Explorer, decreasing its security level; it changes system permissions, decreasing the security level.

 

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

  • It uses techniques included in its code to hide itself while it is active.

 

Banbra.GRO 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.
  • Via Internet, exploiting remote vulnerabilities: attacking random IP addresses, in which it tries to insert a copy of itself by exploiting one or more vulnerabilities.
