BackStealth.A is a Hacking Tool. Though these programs are legitimate and useful tools when they are appropriately used, a hacker could take advantage of them in order to carry out malicious actions.
BackStealth.A can avoid certain firewall protection. This feature can be used, for example, to download files from the Internet.
Once it is run, BackStealth.A goes memory resident in the same space as the firewall, so this software does not consider BackStelath.A as a different process. By doing so, BackStealth.A has free access to the Internet and can download files without the firewall noticing.
