Banbra.GCZ is a Trojan, which although seemingly inoffensive, can actually carry out attacks and intrusions.
Banbra.GCZ redirects attempts to access web pages of certain banks to spoofed pages, with the aim of logging information entered by the user in these pages.
It uses stealth techniques to avoid being detected by the user:
- It deletes the original file from which it was run once it is installed on the computer.
- It modifies system permissions in order to hide itself.
Banbra.GCZ 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.
- Via Internet, exploiting remote vulnerabilities: attacking random IP addresses, in which it tries to insert a copy of itself by exploiting one or more vulnerabilities.
