Chimoz is a Trojan that opens Chinese web in a stealth way without user's awareness.
Additionally, from time to time it connects to a certain website, in order to download an update of itself.
Chimoz 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.
Chimoz is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
