Brief Description 

    

Mofei.C is both a worm and a backdoor type Trojan, which allows a hacker to gain remote access to compromised computers in order to obtain information on their characteristics and run certain commands which allow the attacker to change the password, delete files and directories, etc.

Mofei.C uses the TCP/IP communication ports 8080 and 1080 to connect to the following websites:

  • Google.ods.org
  • Windowsupdate.daemon.sh

Mofei.C spreads via e-mail and across computer networks. The message carrying Mofei.C is easy to identify, as it always includes an attached file called  LOVEGIRLS.EXE.
