Brief Description 

    

Dialer.DB is a dialer type malware. Dialer.DB tries to establish phone connections with high rate numbers, significantly increasing the phone bill of the affected user.

Dialer.DB affects computers that use a modem to connect to the Internet, as it modifies the Dial-up network access settings. It changes the telephone number provided by the ISP (Internet Service Provider), which is a local-rate number, to a high-rate number.

Dialer.DB reaches a computer when the user visits pornographic websites.

Visible Symptoms 

    

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