Bankolimb.BX is a Trojan that is designed to steal users' banking data related to certain banking entities. When they access any website of the affected banks, the Trojan is activated and logs the information entered by the user.
All the information entered in that website will be logged by the Trojan and sent to a certain website.
Then, it sends the stolen information to a remote server.
Bankolimb.BX 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.
Bankolimb.BX is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.>
