Brief Description 

    

LittleWitch.4.2 is a backdoor type Trojan that tricks the user in order to obtain confidential information.

In order to do this, when LittleWitch.4.2 carries out its infection, it displays a message informing the user that the computer has lost some information (passwords, user name, etc.), which the user must re-enter. If the user provides this information, the attacker will be able to access it.

If the attacker gets this information, he will be able to gain remote access to the resources of the affected computer.

LittleWitch.4.2 is a dangerous Trojan, as it allows the hacker to carry out many actions on the affected computer. Some of these actions include formatting the hard drive, sending, receiving, copying, deleting, renaming and moving files, disabling the keyboard, the mouse or the screen, etc.

In order to check all the actions that the hacker can carry out, consult the section Effects.

Visible Symptoms 

    

LittleWitch.4.2 is easy to identify as:

  • It displays a message asking for confidential information about the user of the affected computer.
  • If the user provides the hacker with this information, the CD-ROM tray may open and close, chat sessions may be started, the background of the screen changes, the monitor, mouse or keyboard are disabled, etc. All this things happen for no apparent reason.
