KillAV.FG is a Trojan that ends several processes belonging, among others, to security tools, and reduces the security when browsing through the Internet.
It also connects to a certain server, which allows it to access the affected computer remotely.
KillAV.FG 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.
KillAV.FG is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
