Brief Description 

    

Bionet.312 is a backdoor type Trojan, which allows hackers to gain remote access to computers in order to perform actions that can compromise user confidentiality and impede the tasks performed in the computer.

This Trojan has dangerous effects. The most important actions carried out by Bionet.312 include:

  • It logs keystrokes in order to create a text file, which contains all the information typed by the user.
  • It obtains the passwords of different programs (ICQ, AOL, e-mail).
  • It sends, receives, copies, deletes, renames or moves files and creates directories.
  • It switches off and blocks the computer.

For further information on the destructive effects of Bionet.312, consult the section Effects.

Bionet.312 has three modules: a server program, a client program and a configuration program.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Bionet.312 is difficult to recognize, as it does not show any messages or warnings that indicate that it has reached a computer.

If the mouse buttons swap functions, the CD-ROM tray opens and closes or the screen settings change without user intervention, this may mean that Bionet.312 has infected the computer.
