Brief Description 

    

Dialer.AR is a program that could allow a hacker to access the affected computer remotely. This program tries to pass itself off as a program targeted users can download in order to access erotic contents.

Visible Symptoms 

    

After activating, Dialer.AR shows the following visible symptoms:

  • It displays a message asking the user for confirmation to download the program.
  • It displays an icon on the Taskbar, next to the system clock. If you right-click this icon, an option is displayed to uninstall the program. Once you select it, Dialer.AR will apparently uninstall, but the corresponding task will stay in memory. Furthermore, the Registry entry Dialer.AR created will not be removed, which will cause the program to run every time the system is restarted.
