Brief Description 

    

Hupigon.SO is a backdoor that 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 affects productivity, preventing tasks from being carried out:

  • In the affected computer: causes system slowdowns.

 

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 uses stealth techniques to avoid being detected by the user:

  • It uses techniques included in its code to hide itself while it is active.
  • It injects itself in running processes.

 

It uses several methods in order to avoid detection by antivirus companies:

  • It terminates its own execution if it detects that it is being executed in a virtual machine environment, such as VMWare or VirtualPC.

 

Hupigon.SO 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.
