MegaChuku is a Trojan that acts as the server program of an application that hackers use to attack computers and gain remote access to their resources.
MegaChuku is the file in this application that is installed on the target computer and opens a communications port. Other files in this hacking program allow the attackers to gain remote access to the victim computer, configure the server program, etc.
MegaChuku is difficult to identify, as it does not display any warnings or messages that indicate that it has infected a computer.
