Brief Description 

    

IRC.Sdbot.D is a Trojan, which although seemingly inoffensive, can actually carry out attacks and intrusions.

 

It affects productivity, preventing tasks from being carried out:

  • In the affected computer: it converts the computer into a platform for taking malicious action surreptitiously: spam sending, launch of Denial of Service attacks, malware distribution, etc.

 

It reduces the security level of the computer: it awaits remote-control orders received through IRC.

 

IRC.Sdbot.D uses the following propagation or distribution methods:

  • Exploiting vulnerabilities with the intervention of the user: exploiting vulnerabilities in file formats or applications. To exploit them successfully it needs the intervention of the user: opening files, viewing malicious web pages, reading emails, etc.
  • IRC: It sends a copy of itself to all users connected to the channel to which the infected user is connected.
