Brief Description 

    
Gaobot.DMB is a worm with the characteristics of a Trojan.
Gaobot.DMB spreads by copying itself, without infecting other files. Its main objective is to collapse computers and networks, preventing users from working with their computers.
Furthermore, due to its Trojan characteristics, Gaobot.DMB allows hackers to get into and carry out dangerous actions in affected computers, such as capturing screenshots, stealing personal data, etc.

 

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

Gaobot.DMB 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.

Gaobot.DMB redirects attempts to access several web pages to a specific IP address.

 

Gaobot.DMB 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.
