Flux.DW is a Trojan, which although seemingly inoffensive, can actually carry out attacks and intrusions.
It reduces the security level of the computer:
it awaits remote-control orders received through
IRC or HTTP.
It uses stealth techniques to avoid being detected by the user:
- It injects itself in running processes.
Flux.DW 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.
- Computer networks (shared resources): it creates copies of itself in shared network resources to which it has access.
