Brief Description 

    

Keylogger.FF is a Trojan, which although seemingly inoffensive, can actually carry out attacks and intrusions.

 

It reduces the security level of the computer: it changes the security settings of Internet Explorer, decreasing its security level; it changes system permissions, decreasing the security level.

 

It uses stealth techniques to avoid being detected by the user:

  • It uses techniques included in its code to hide itself while it is active.
  • It deletes the original file from which it was run once it is installed on the computer.

 

Keylogger.FF 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.
