Welcome to the Virus Encyclopedia of Panda Security.
Agent.LOG allows hackers to gain remote access to the affected computer in order to carry out actions that compromise user confidentiality and impede the tasks performed on the computer.
It captures certain information entered or saved by the user, with the corresponding threat to privacy:
It then sends the gathered information to a remote user by any available means: email, FTP, etc.
It reduces the security level of the computer:
- It opens one or more ports to allow remote access to the computer and takes action that compromises user confidentiality.
- It notifies the attacker that the computer has been compromised and is ready to be used maliciously.
Means of transmission
Agent.LOG does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs the 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.
Agent.LOG has the following additional characteristics:
- It is 159517 bytes in size.
