Singu.AM is a backdoor which installs itself as a service in the system and opens a port in the affected computer, through which it can be remotely controlled by an attacker.
This would allow him to carry out malicious actions, such as controlling connections, logging keytrokes, configuring connection parameters, accessing the Windows Registry, etc.
Singu.AM does not spread automatically by its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer.
Singu.AM is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.>>>
