Brief Description 

    

Apher is a Trojan that, once it infects the computer, downloads a file from a website.

There are different versions of this Trojan, so the type of file downloaded varies.

Once this is done, Apher deletes itself from the infected computer, so as not to leave any trace.

Apher does not use any specific means to spread. In fact, it can use any of the means normally used by viruses: floppy disks, CD-ROMs, e-mail messages with infected attachments, Internet downloads, FTP, etc.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Apher is very difficult to identify , as it does not display any warnings or messages that indicate that it has reached a computer.
