Brief Description 

    

CodeBase.L is a vulnerability or programming flaw in an application or service.

This error refers to operations that can cause abnormal functioning of the application and can be reproduced artificially by a malicious user in order to take a series of actions including: remote code execution, denial of service, information disclosure or privilege escalation.

A vulnerability is not an immediate threat to the computer. However, it is a potential entry channel for other threats that could have destructive effects. For this reason it is highly advisable to stay informed about vulnerabilities discovered in the programs installed on your computers and apply security patches provided by developers and accessible through their websites.

 

CodeBase.L prevents access from programs to websites of several companies related with security tools (antivirus programs, firewalls, etc.).

CodeBase.L redirects attempts to access web pages of certain banks to spoofed pages, with the aim of logging information entered by the user in these pages.

CodeBase.L redirects attempts to access several web pages to a specific IP address.

 

CodeBase.L does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer. The means of transmission used include, among others, floppy disks, CD-ROMs, email messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.
