Death.26 is a backdoor type Trojan, which allows hackers to gain remote access to computers in order to access confidential information and impede the tasks performed.
The most important actions carried out by Death.26 include: it opens and closes the CD-ROM tray; it changes the screensaver; it turns off and blocks the computer; it sends, receives, modifies, runs or deletes files.
This Trojan has three modules:
- The server program, which is installed on the affected computer.
- The client program, which is installed on the hacker's computer.
The editor program, which allows the hacker to configure certain characteristics of the server program.
Death.26 is difficult to identify, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate that it has reached a computer.
If the CD-ROM tray opens and closes and if the keyboard blocks, this may mean that Death.26 has reached your computer.
