Brief Description 

    

Banker.BOA is a Trojan, which although seemingly inoffensive, can actually carry out attacks and intrusions: screenlogging, stealing personal data, etc.

 

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