Braban.L is a worm that spreads by copying itself, without infecting other files.
It uses stealth techniques to avoid being detected by the user:
- It injects itself in running processes.
Braban.L uses the following propagation or distribution methods:
- Exploiting vulnerabilities with the intervention of the user: exploiting vulnerabilities in file formats or applications. To exploit them successfully it needs the intervention of the user: opening files, viewing malicious web pages, reading emails, etc.
- Instant messaging: it sends links pointing to a copy of itself to all users included in the infected user's contacts list.
- It is dropped or downloaded to the computer by other malware specimens, for example: Dadobra.AAR.
