Brief Description 

    

Typot is a Trojan that only affects computers running under the Linux platform. Similarly, as it is dynamically linked against GLIBC 2.3, this Trojan only works in recent Linux distributions.

The aim of Typot is to map the ports that it opens at random to the Internet.

Typot collects information about the open ports and sends them to a predefined IP address. If this IP address is not available, Typot uninstalls itself

Visible Symptoms 

    

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