Nuker.69 is a Trojan that is designed to cause computers with Windows NT or Windows 95 installed to crash.
Nuker.69 launches its remote attacks by sending a flood of data between the hackers and the victims via the Internet (TCP/IP network, Internet Protocol).
As it is not a virus as such, it does not carry out any infection or spread to other computers. However, as it causes affected computers to crash, all data that has not been saved since the start of the session will be lost.
The only indication of the presence of this Trojan on the affected computer is that it crashes for no apparent reason.
