Brief Description 

    

Rivarts.A is a Trojan that logs the keystrokes entered by the user, blocks web addresses and stores the certificates used in the affected computer. Then it connects to several PHP scripts hosted in different websites in order to send the data it has gathered.

Rivarts.A contains its own database in order to store both the information it harvests and its settings. Its author has used the SQLite engine, which is an open source library.

This Trojan is downloaded to the affected computer by another Trojan detected as Downloader.FHO.

Visible Symptoms 

    

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