Brief Description 

    

Dumador.BC is a backdoor that allows the computer to be remotely controlled, as it opens two TCP ports and receives remote commands by making GET requests to two different web addresses.

It also logs certain information in a file, and prevents users from accessing several websites, mainly belonging to antivirus companies.

However, the code of Dumador.BC contains several bugs, which prevent some of these characteristics from working properly.

Dumador.BC does not spread automatically using its own means. It is downloaded to the affected computer by the Trojan detected as Downloader.DCM.

Visible Symptoms 

    

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